- Apr 11, '12 by itsmejuliQuote from Jammin' RNYour hospitality experience taught you some very valuable skills that will crossover to nursing.Thanks for the responses everyone! Looks like I willl definately be applying. For those of you who got the job, did you have prior medical experience? I've been in the hospitality industry for 12 years... And I really tried to play that up on how it could transfer to nursing on my resume.
My years of waitressing taught me how to carry multiple items in one hand, I can carry a water cup, pill cup, insulin syringe, nitro patch and alcohol swab all in my left hand.
And unless you're really good at multi-tasking, there's no way you'd have lasted 12 years in hospitality.
Good luck withthe job search.
- Apr 11, '12 by inchRistIcaNMy mom always told me, when asking for something you need, the worst response you can get is no, or a laugh with a no.
So shoot for it, if the worse you will get is a no. I live in Dallas and I have been doing it. I was told by HR here and in El Paso, why would I apply for anything other than a GN position, even though I have a RN license, it does not mean I am eligible to apply for any of those positions. I just politely thanked them for their advice.
So I'm guessing here in Texas there's not as much luck doing that, but I still try. Its hard to get a GN position that "in just one day, 1200 people applied"
A job will come!!!
