I just graduated in in December with my ADN. I just started a job in Pediatric home healthcare to try to get some experience with pediatrics and am going to volunteer at a local Children's hospital to try to get my foot in the door. I am trying to determine how long I should wait until I start applying for the jobs at the Children's hospital? I was thinking 6 months. Does this seem to short? The PHHC is only per diem and I would like something Full time/Part time that is constant, yet I do plan to stay per diem at the PHHC agency. I would love some advise.
