Hi. I am in Denver, Colorado and finishing my prereqs for an accelerated BSN program. However, I see that it seems to be extremely hard to get a job here in CO as a new grad. I am considering taking a detour and doing another job that will get me contacts within the hospital and experience. The only thing I can think of is phlebotomy. However, there has to be many more choices to fit the bill.
I am pretty nervous spending a ton of money on a BSN and then not being able to get a job. It seems to make more sense to work for a while, gain experience and contacts, and then get my BSN.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
