So I am in nursing school and still work part time as a CNA on the weekends. I work at a LTC facility and I like it..compared to places I have completed clinicals at and places poeple tell me about. It really is a great facility and I am happy to work there.
However I truly want to be in a hospital. That is a major goal of mine. I would love the experienceto be a patient care tech/CNA at a hospital. I have been applying to SO MANY hospitals for SOOO MANY positions. I have modified my resume too many times to count, and added things I feel makes me a strong canidate. I never even had one phone call from a hospital! =[
I want to volunteer during my breaks [my schedule is so chaotic now] just to feel for the hospital setting. However I actually want to WORK. I want to be involved in patient care in an acute setting not just "watch" or be in the way.
I am feeling so discouraged since I have applied to countless positions and no one calls back..I feel like it's luck of the draw.
I worry that once I graduate, I won't be able to find a job in the hospital. I mean of course I will take what I can get, but my heart is working in an acute setting.
Any suggestions for increasing my odds of getting an intvw? Has anyone been in the same boat?
I have added that I am a nursing student, and have cna experience for over a year and have done my clinicals at hospitals..I have attached cover letters..I thought that was a shoe in for my resume to stand out..
