I need your help nurses

  1. I having a hard time getting a job getting a job at med surg unit. I have worked as a nurse for over 3 years now. My first job was at inpatient rehab unit and currently working at long term care facility as RN Team Leader. I like my job but i really want to progress in my career. The only certification i have is BLS. What else can i do to improve my chances of getting hire in medsurg or tele unit? Thanks.

    For Tele, or any monitored unit, you need ACLS, get it, and maybe take some rhythm interpretation courses (you need the CEUs anyway. You have lots of hospitals around you, just keep hitting them and following up on your applications.
