Hello everyone! I am new to this website which I have often checked out for my various questions. I graduated in NJ May 2008. I will be taking NCLEX within a month or so, but aside from my curiosity about acing the test, I would like to know if it is hard to get a job without having any related experience. Has anyone ever been in my predicament? I will be attending a career fair for new grads, RNs & nursing students & I feel my resume will appear so inadequate. I have always had jobs at offices, libraries, retail, & volunteer work at nursing homes (for recreation only), etc....I was never able to acquire a nursing assistant or patient care tech job.
Is it hard to attain a job without any medical experience whatsoever? Thanks for any replies.
