I am a recent grad and have been working now for about 7 months. When I got out of school I had a hard time finding a job and took the first full time job I was offered. I now work in a small psych hospital and work nights. My shifts are slow and I don't feel like I am gaining much experience. I want to work in a hospital and really would like to work in the OR or the ER; problem is that most these jobs want 2 or more years experience. I get discouraged and feel like I will forever be stuck in psych nursing. Please help me come up with ideas how I can better my resume and increase my chances of getting hired at a hospital. I have thought of taking a PALS class and have searched for ACLS classes without success. Thank you for your suggestions.
