Job in central Ohio

  1. Hi everyone.

    Ok. I am in my first quarter in a ADN program at COTC in Newark. I have been working at a nursing home in Columbus since last Oct. as a STNA. I am really getting sick of it. I love the residents, but the mgt. is horrible. And I want to work in a setting (hospital maybe?) that I can learn more! I have learned as much as I can there, and I do not want to work in a nursing home once I get my RN.

    My dilemma. I have applied to Mt. Carmel, Ohio Health, Childrens. Yet, its all been over the internet (cause they normally have the app. online). And so far have had no sucess. I thought that I maybe able to get into Ohio Health since my Aunt works at Dr's West (pathology lab). But I haven't heard from them yet.

    Any suggestions on what my next step should be? I am desperately wanting to learn something new! And something that could go along with my schooling. Any thoughts or advice would do.

    Thanks!

    I am just entering my pre-nursing program and had this discussion with my advisor today. She said to get into a hospital you have to be persistant, and you may get turned down 5 or 6 times or more before being accepted for a position. She said you have to be persistant and just keep applying for any open position you want. Hope this helps and keep trying!

    Hey,
    Thanks for the infor and encouragment. I am in my first quarter in nursing, and believe it or not have still been applying to hospitals everywhere! I may have a job lined up through OSU Med Center, but you have to be in your acute setting for clinicals, and that will be in the fall for me...so I am crossing my fingers! This has definatly been interesting though getting a job. But, I'll make it. Otherwise it wouldn't be worth it. Thanks for replying.
