I have recently graduated and still trying to find that first job. I am still working for 8.00/hr and need a job bad... A nurse that works with me in the ER told me that she would suggest taking the TNCC or the CEN. She told me that as a new grad a hospital would be stupid not to hire me if I become certified. I did a little research and it costs around $300.00 out of pocket either way. Also, it was suggested that I take the ACLS and PALS. Would the old hands out there suggest taking these without experience? I am just looking for the foot up to get the job. Any advice would help!
thanks in advance,
