Alot of nurses, RN or LPN have trouble finding a full-time position after graduation. It occurs to me that those who have the most difficult time have the least amount of experience in the field. That is, they may have gotten their CNA/STNA license, but they never worked as one, which I think is a shame, and something that should be further implemented into nursing programs
. It's one thing to go through the training and get licensed as a CNA/STNA, it's quite another to work as one, much is the same with becoming a nurse. Nursing school
will only build a foundation, and all nurses are most certainly not created equal. I learned as much my first year in the field as I did in nursing school. It is a profession where you NEVER stop learning. At any rate, take anything and everything you can in the mean time. Part-time gigs will get you experience in the field, and that builds a resume.
