Hi all experienced occupational health nurses..hoping you can help me out here... I am SO frustrated! I decided a few months ago I would really like to work in either occupational health or an immediate/urgent care setting. In the past 2 months, I have applied for 8 jobs with NO luck. Not even one interview!! I think I have a lot to offer. I have been an RN for 6 months, LPN for 2 1/2 years before then, all of that time I worked in a hospital's medical/surgical unit, and also worked a seasonal flu shot clinic nurse position for the past 2 years in a row. So technically I have about 3 years in med/surg. I am BCLS (CPR) certified, and PPD certified. Also during my ASN program, I completed a 96 hr. practicum in an outpatient medical/surgical weight loss clinic. I currently have an ASN, but am a current RN-BSN student and will graduate with my BSN May 2007. I have excellent references. I have an active license with absolutely no history of any discipline against it, and have never been written up, in trouble, terminated, etc.. I have no clue why I am having no luck getting a job in this area. Can someone please tell me some tips on how you got your job in this area or give me any advice? I am SOOO tired of med/surg, and really want to make a move out of it, but am trying to be patient so that I get into a good job that I will enjoy more. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
