I can't presume to know your situation, but take a job anywhere while you are applying for nursing jobs. It will show that you are responsible and that regular jobs are not beneath you.
Had to jump in here. I know you mean well, but for me, and I'm sure the OP as well, not working has nothing to do with jobs being "beneath" me.
School, really, is my job. I've been in school full-time since I was three. I work hard to get As, and I've earned academic scholarships because of it. I have summers off, yes, but during that time I usually study subjects that interest me, babysit, and help family out.
No, I don't do anything as strenuous or inspiring as those of you who have families, work full time, and
go to school. My life is, naturally, different from anyone else's. I have plenty of reasons for not working part time; I don't think I need to share them here. I will say that none of them involve me thinking I'm too good for or too above the jobs that are available.
Responsibility and dedication is developed before someone ever starts a job. Unfortunately, employers only have resumes to look at.
