    I got an offer from the manager for the medical unit today!! Best of luck to everyone!! This was my second time applying to this position... I applied in the summer and got rejected!! So don't lose hope! Y'all were meant to be nurse for a reason... you got through nursing school and I'm confident everything happens for a reason and in perfect timing!

    I actually have been volunteering in patient hospitality at CHOC and at nexus (formerly healthbridge) children's hospital since August. I picked up a temporary / part time job at a clinic doing occasional meds, EKGs, and handling referrals.. babysitting as needed and trying to just take care of myself emotionally and mentally while I wasn't working full time! I would suggest volunteering somewhere even if it's doing vitals (lestonnac free clinic in orange takes volunteers!!) and if PEds is your passion to show interest working with children in some form. I honestly did not have a lot of luck from any other hospitals (I didn't get any other interviews)... so it was definitely stressful. I also went to school out of state and had no experience as an aid, so it is definitely possible!!
