So I have an appointment with another staff agency this week. I had to do my own background check, new TB, 7 CEUS in :
I'm crossing my fingers that this goes well. In the meantime, i've decided to apply for at least 3-5jobs per day and to brush up on my knowledge and certs to not get rusty and to beef up resume. I was told by some kind nurse at the office I did my exam at that any cert makes one more marketable if it comes down to 2 people being considered for the same job and one has a cert and the other doesn't.
So Next week, I am taking a 40hr IV Therapy certification class even though RNs are not required. I think it will only help me as we didn' t get to do as many sticks in my program. Then I'm going to do ACLS then PALS.
All of these things start to get pricy but I see it as an investment in my career.
I signed up for CEUFast.com with unlimited CEUS so I plan to take some free CEUS- keeps my knowledge base up which can only help me.
If anyone finds themselves in the same predicament as me i.e license , new grad and trying to find a job, please post, share your stories, what you are doing etc.
Ok, off to apply for at least 3 jobs because it's late and I'm tired and hungry
