I Just got my LNA License number and have been applying for jobs left and right. I am wondering if the job market is just as bad out there for LNA's as it is for New Grad Nursing Students. I applied for about 10 jobs at 6 different hospitals and 4 of the jobs it said I was not qualified and they were looking at other applicants. Another hospital that I talked to told me to keep applying for jobs on their site if I do not hear back from them but I am not sure that all hospitals feel this way. I am curious if any of you have been applying to multiple jobs at the same hospital.
I also have a question for all of the nuses out there. I am wondering how I can make myself more marketable. A bunch of people in my family are in the medical field and they told me not to go work at a LTC facility if I want to eventually work at a hospital because they will not want me after working at a nursing home. But I am getting very nervous about not finding a job and then no one wanting to hire me because I have taken so much time finding a job.
Thanks for any information that you have.
