I have been a nurse for a little over a year now. I have worked tele and currently charge nights on an obs unit in a small town outside of Houston. I really want to get into outpatient surgery, but it seems like nobody will even talk to me and all of my applications are not being selected. It seems like most places want people already experienced and ready to hit the floor; nobody has the time or money to teach or even orient nurses anymore. Does anybody have any good advice? I'm getting so discouraged.
