I am a recent graduate of an accelerated BSN program in St. Louis, MO. I have a 3.8 GPA, passed NCLEX and am looking for my 1st job. I don't have any "connections" and since I wasn't a tech during school (was impossible with 50+ hrs/wk of school/homework) I have no hospital experience either.
Is anyone else in this situation? What did people do to get jobs in St. Louis. I've applied to Barnes, Mercy, SSM (FUTURES program that starts in June), St. Luke's, SLU, and MoBap. Probably have submitted around 30 applications. Any tips or tricks people had to get their foot in the door at any of these places? I am super smart and a fast learner but it just seems like no one wants to hire a graduate in my position.
ANY advice/support anyone has would be great. Thanks!
