Hello fellow nurses! New BSN grad here, who has been applying for hospital, LTC and home health jobs like mad since passing NCLEX in early June.
Some of the hospitals warn online that it can take as long as 90 days to get an offer. Other potential employers have told me they want to get background check results.
So, I am wondering how long it took you to land your first job. How long did you wait before applying elsewhere? Did they let you know they were interested right away?
I worked as a CNA for almost a year a half during nursing school. I graduated in Dec 2012, got my license Jan. this year and was just offered a per diem position at my hospital a couple weeks ago. Went to computer training today! I was very persistent with the manager. She had a shortage of aides on her floor so I would float to her floor a LOT and treated it as a working interview. I love their staff and they grew to love me and now I'm one of them! I'm so excited! Good luck to you! There were BSNs that graduated with me and got jobs right away so there is some hope!
