Jobs for nursing students
- 0Jul 1, '09 by dsingson5Hi guys,
What are the kinds of jobs and jobs positions that are available for us current nursing students?
Specifically, If you just finished your 3rd year of nursing and you need an immediate job to support your finances, what type of health care or health related job are you qualified? Thanks guys.

I was a nurse Extern at a hospital and got 13.00 an hr , now is a good time to apply for a Nurse Extern program somewhere, may be a little late, but call around . I would suggest calling hospitals and ask around....sometimes they will train you for unit secretery or something, just to get your foot in the door somewhere, because when you get your RN it is hard to get a job now and will be nice to have seniority somewhere.
Goodluck....sorry Don't have too many suggestions for yah.

So if you are a nursing student, most likely you've done alot of the basic things CNAs do. However, if you've worked somewhere outside of healthcare, it shows that you don't ONLY know healthcare you have knowledge in other areas too. It is good though to maybe get your foot in a healthcare facility to possibly move up in that facility, maybe first starting out as a volunteer a couple of hours a week (while working elsewhere) then after you graduate you can work there as a RN - just a suggestion.

CNA really? Don't you have to apply to a different program other than BSN for it? Sorry, I'm not yet that familiar with health care jobs.
And a unit secretary huh? OK I'll try to do some explorin'. Thank you k.morris.
Yah, I was thinking about coaching soccer to kids. Maybe, I could put my hobbies in to some good use. Awesome.. Thanks swirlything.
Volunteer work huh? I saw serve.gov and found places that I could volunteer at and It looks pretty cool. There are places close in my area that needs some good volunteers. And with the times right now, volunteering can really help a lot of people. Thanks SnowRain.Last edit by dsingson5 on Jul 1, '09
