    All I can say to nursing students in a hospital while you are in school. I just graduated with the hopes of working at the top hospital in our area and didn't think it would be hard to get a job. Yeah right. Thank goodness I had worked as a nursing assistant at another hospital while in school and they hired me on the spot. In fact, the only graduates that did get jobs were the ones that had worked. It also makes the transition a little easier because I know where supplies are, I know the nurses and how the floor is laid out. Our instructors never stressed the importance of working, they said we shouldn't work AT ALL. Not good advice if you actually want to work as a nurse when done with school. The field of nursing has changed and jobs are scarce! Good luck!!!
