I'm LVN here in California (Central Valley to be exact) I just past my boards last May then my name was appeared at the website last July 11. Since I received the letter that I passed I start looking and applying here. i start applying last june 6 till now.
I have active CNA license. Should apply as CNA or work as caregiver even I am a license nurse??? I'm sad I still waiting for interview calls. But still no job offers. Im planning to apply as CNA coz I work before in a Nursing and Rehab. i did volunteering in hospital and some private home nursing in our country. i have BSN but CA have their concurrency issues thats why I got denied to seat for nclex RN thats why I took nclex PN.
And I dont know if my resume is steong enough to enter the very competitive nursing job hunting here in CA.
