Contacted by my recruiter?? lol
I RAN to my recruiter and said "I want to work in THIS hospital, and ONLY this hospital, and if you let me start in the ER< I will sign a 5-year contract
I'm only 1/2 kidding
We have had 2 huge job fairs, with people wanting recruits of all majors. The entire university community was there, all 10,000 of us students, trying to get our resumes in the door
I had offers from 13 different hospitals, in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, and 2 in KC Kansas (we filled out one pre-application and it was distributed to all nursing recruiters in attendance, i did not actually apply to that many places, only one actually). If you find the recruiter, they WILL HIRE! About 80% of my class now has contracts signed, as many completed them over spring break. I start in the ER May 28th, and I couldnt be more excited!!! (bet you couldnt tell?
Contact ANY hospital you are interested in, and ask for the Human Resources Department, visit their websites, and ask for interviews!! I think just about everywhere is hiring, especially if you are willing to relocate... and if you want to move to missouri, i can email you are big list of places needed nurses NOW
Good luck, its very exciting!!!
