Hello all, I'm new to this forum and would like others input/advice on this matter.I'm a RN-BSN with six years of nursing experience, five years in a hospital setting and a year overseas in a clinic on a military base. My husband is in the Air Force and we were station overseas and have relocated to San Antonio. I am actively trying to obtain a PACU/Surgery Services position. I've also applied to other positions as well. Even though I have been out of the hospital setting for 2 years it seems hospitals no longer wants to cross train nurses and only hires those who have worked in their system. I even applied for entry level positions, RN residency programs, attended job fairs, and even talked to hospital nurse recruiters and still no luck. Btw some of these nurse recruiters were not personable and of no help. Traveling and relocating is not an option. Any other RNs having the same issue in other places? Any tips on landing that right job? Seven years ago, as a new grad, it seemed to be easier to get a job. I'm just getting frustrated.
