    Depending on where you live or are looking for job in , i would use caution with walking onto a unit...in big cities or in very busy hospitals, job seekers walking onto a floor with the sole purpose of asking for a job are not welcome. If you even get past security (visitors passes only given to those there by invitation or a purpose such as to visit a patient), The manager has plenty to deal with and will end up directing you to HR, who will tell you to apply online. A way to get around this is to have connections on that unit. If you have connections then walking into the unit would be not bad as someone knows you there. I found that using the telephone is tough also, as most managers do not want to deal with job seekers since they have a lot going on with patient care and administration.

    Places you can walk into without much issue are: hospitals in rural area or cities with actual nursing shortages (i heard the Dakotas and Montana are these type of states), clinics, and SNF/nursing homes.

    I am actually considering doing the same thing but for a student nursing position. I met up with a manager who knew other managers and needless to say she called me the same day! Apparently, the DON was interested in me and wanted to meet with me !! Well, I haven't heard from him since ever since I've tried calling him. But I'm going into full stalker/annoying mode every week to ensure that I'm heard lol thanks for the advice !! The days of just submitting your resume and expecting a call are long gone!!
