I'm just moving into third year of my nursing program
. I know I have lots of time before I need to think about jobs, but I often go searching online out of curiosity. Every job I look at, they're looking for the completion of a specialty program, or 1/2/3 years experience in acute care, O.R., whatever area the job is in (except perhaps medical and surgical floors).
I don't particulary want to start on a medical or surgical floor (yes yes I know everyone should do it, it's the gold standard for experience, etc). My question is if I try to apply to these jobs that want experience, will they take one look at my resume and chuck it, or will they read on and consider if I'm worth orienting? It seems possible because I see threads all the time about new grads starting in PACU, ICU, and all sorts of things. Do I have hope or am I delusional...
