need advice new RN

  1. I have over 10 plus years experience in the medical field. I was a hospital quarterman and then I completed my investment and became an LPN. I just finished nursing school and I am finding nothing but slammed doors when it comes to applying for nurse jobs. I keep getting informed I must wait until January for a new graduate program to start. I do not want my first experience as a nurse to be in home health as I would like to have followed your sis to work alongside with. can someone please offer me some advice to get noticed and hired.

    Do you mean hospital corpsman? If so, that is pretty much the same as civilian hospital jobs, so it should count as relevant experience.

    I am sorry that you're in such a pickle, but residencies are rapidly becoming the ONLY way into a hospital position for new grads in many areas of the country - so it's not unusual. If you can lock in one of those slots, go for it! Your background & experience means that you are much more qualified for home care than other new grads..... and it's only for a little while.
