I just got done the first year of my RN program (2 year program) at my college. I planned
on trying to get hired at the local hospital where I did my clinical at since in my current situation (no car, and it's near me) it would be the best bet.
Well, I applied and I have been following up with HR every week. They said it gets forwarded to the managers. I've also been keeping in touch with the managers. One manager told me to email her. I did so on Monday and I still haven't gotten a response.
I also found out about a week after I applied that they do not
take American Red Cross CPR certification and that was a hang-up on them interviewing me I guess. They take AHA CPR certification. I signed up for the AHA CPR class and I have it this Saturday. I personally think it's redundant, but I'm trying to do anything to get a summer/next year employment.
They said after I get certified, I could drop off the card/letter of certification at HR. But I was also thinking of actually going to speak to managers of the respective floors in person. Should I do that and what should I say??
I was thinking of just introducing myself and telling them what I've been telling them over the phone (that I'm a nursing student, did clinicals there, and that I'm really interested in the position and working there).
Any other advice?
