    Hi. Can someone help me please. What are the "tech jobs" that some people are talking about? How do I look up those jobs? Is there another name for them?

    Thanks!
    Nursing support technician, certified nursing assistant, and patient care assistant/associate are all helpful jobs to have while in school.

    Hello everyone;

    I have had my Licence for almost six months now and have not been able to find employment. I was wondering if anyone is experiencing the same thing. I graduated in 2007, but passed the nclex, late January, none of the hospitals are hiring. Some of the nurse recruits said they have contracted with the school and are taking most of their the New grads in my area. Aslo, most of hospitals, nursing homes, and nursing Agenc, everywhere I go, they are asking for experienced nurses. It can be very frustrating sometimes. It seems like it took me forever to pass the NCLEX and now I can't find a job. arrggghhhh...

    If you are experiencing similar situations, please share your thoughts with me. Thanks.
    I feel the same! I got my MD RN License in May. I graduated in a foreign country 10 years ago and worked as an ICU nurse for 6 years.
    But I have NOT been working for almost 3 years. I have been looking for a job in many hospitals. Nowadays, less job opennings to public, and most positions are PRN. That means no salary guarantee, so I still won't be able to pay my Apt. rent if I choose a PRN job. I don't know how I can get a full time job here. I understand you completely...........

    Hi,

    I thought this might interst someone. It is from Children's Medical Center in DC.


    Nurse Recruitment is now accepting new graduate nurse applications from May and December 2009 graduates. We will begin to accept May 2010 graduate applications in January 2010. All new graduate nurses should apply for RN I or RN I/II positions.

    Hi,

    Actually I was browsing the website when I saw the info.I copied the information from the Children's Medical Center website.And when I checked the open positions they had lots of positions for RN 1 and RN 11.

    I am actually starting nursing school in Jan and I was looking for hospitals where I can apply as a nursing student or CNA after fundamentals. But I just thought I should share this info since I knew some new graduates would be looking for work.

    New grads or not--be PERSISTENT---get on their nerves, call them ALL the time, go to the recruiters and even the managers themselves of the specific units that you are interested in working on...also, if you haven't graduated yet; the best way to get your foot in the door is through your clinicals, and DON'T BE PICKY! Everyone wants to work L&D, PEDS and ED right out of school, it's probably not going to happen unless you know someone, especially now with jobs being so tight, go to the hospital that has a good L&D, PEDS or ED--work on their MED SURG for a year and transfer out--it's much easier to do that, and you'll make money while you are waiting for the "perfect job".
