Has anyone had any trouble finding a job in a hospital while a student?
I am having a terrible time. I have been employed with a local hospital for two months now, and it was an act of congress to get here. Unfortunately, the department I am in is horrible(long story)...so I have tried transferring...which is against hospital policy. You cannot legally transfer until 6mts-one year after employment. But, my super has given me the okay. I have put out 8 (patient care related) transfers and went on two interviews and
A: No one returns my calls
B. I am perfect candidate but I will be attending school...and they need full timers. (30 hours is not enough for them)
When I mention nursing school
it is like they wig-out and bar me from employment. They already assume I am going to quit. Grrrr. Keep in mind...I have a degree already so my responsiblity will be nursing classes only. Which is a load I understand, but it seems hospitals would want to attract students.
I resigned...I could never get a transfer I only got a runaround. I guess it is back to waiting tables.
