What I did was applied online and kept in touch with HR/nurse recruiters - I then got invited to a job fair, met some managers and received an offer. If possible, attend some job fairs/open houses to meet face to face with hiring managers. Also, be prepared for an on-the-spot interview, dress professional, and have a resume (some people like to make portfolios - I only brought a resume). Good Luck!

    Didn't get a chance to read all comments, but I am applying to facility that says to either send the resume to X address, apply online, or fax. I would want to fax it. What do you all think?
