Newly Minted Nurse (2 days old) -- Need advice

  1. 0
    Hi Everyone,
    Wow its still a bit of a shocker that i'm actually a nurse it seems like yesterday i was still in school. Ok well passed boards 2 days a go and let the job search begin! Cmy state BON hasn't updated with my license yet so i can't apply for anything so using this time to write resume, and gather materials.

    When do you ask your prof's for references? when you interviewed or now when i'm preparing to look and such. Where do you find jobs? is it, hopsital website? or go in person, or agency? mail hard copies? but who do you direct it to? or uh what not to say. Do i send resumes to every single place and see who's hiring or only to places tht i really really want to work at?

    Can you share some job search tips with a newbie? thank you!!
