I graduated in December and passed my boards March 30th. I have been searching for jobs ever since but no one has contacted me. I desperately need work because of my student visa situation. I only have a year for work. I wanted to work and then work on a working visa (but that's another topic so I am not going to get into that). I have applied all over the 5 borough's in NY and Long Island (I live on Long Island). I also applied to Westchester county and they rejected me at st. John;s Riverside. At this point I don't know what to do. The only work experience I have where part time jobs at a store and my college campus. I am young, 22, and went off to nursing after high school so I have no CNA or LPN experience. I tried getting nurse externships in college but those were too selective so they rejected me. And now employers are rejecting me also.
Do You have any tips/tricks I can do or add to my resume? I only put my preceptorship and clinical experience there since I have no work experience. I also put my education, and student work experience (which has nothing to do with nursing). Another thing is that I do not drive so I am very limited

Quote from Kimberlina
Um, Albany is pretty safe. You just need to stay away from certain bad neighborhoods. I live about 40 minutes away, commute every day, used to walk around outside the hospital during my lunch...I wouldn't do it at night, but most violence is drug related, so if you stay away from that, your odds are pretty good.
There is a great bus system with stops right outside the hospitals in Albany. You would just need to get a place on the busline. Nurses are often looking for roommates who are also nurses around here.
I just applied to Albany. Can you tell me how long did it take for them to respond to you? (I left the work experience area blank because I don't have any
) Also how much is the salary (if you don't mind)?
