I'm a newly licensed RN. I graduated 9 months ago abroad and came to the U.S. b/c of my husband's studies.
I was licensed 3 weeks ago, and started looking for a job in our area a month ago, but have failed to get ANY call-backs.
I'm really trying to keep an open mind about the positions I'm willing to take for my first job as a nurse. My only red line is that I won't do night exclusively (rotation is OK) and I prefer not to apply for "pure" medical wards for now, just b/c there are things that interest me more.
I think that in the past month I have applied to about 20 position in three different hospitals, and still - no call-back.
What am I doing wrong?
I started to think that perhaps my C.V. isn't doing me a good service. I have lots of non-nursing experience, in customer service and such. should I leave it out? Plus, I'm 28 - how long back should I go? My current c.v. consists of 2 paged, 3 if you count the cover letter... I feel like it's to long but don't want to leave anything important out. Help please!
