Are there any decent paying jobs a pre-nursing student can get that pays at least 12 an hour? I've tried so many places like hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and have been going to open interviews and can't find nothing. Right now I'm volunteering and planning to get a reference but I really don't know if it's going to pay off. I'm sure a lot of pre-nursing students are in the same situation as I am. I've also looked at short term training programs like phlebotomy but it's so expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm from Buffalo ny by the way.
