Warning: this is another "I need a job, what should I do?" email, so feel free to move on if you are sick of them.
I swear, the next person that says something along the lines of "But isn't there a huge nursing shortage?" is going to get popped in the nose.
I am a new RN with both a BSN and a BA in computer science. Like so many others, I went into school with the assurance that I would be able to find a job. I was given the double whammy of being told that with the push towards EMR, an RN with computer skills would be about as sought after as a viable republican candidate.
I have applied for about 50 jobs that have anything to do with anything healthcare. I have all the major hospital career sites bookmarked. My resume has been sent to about a dozen nursing homes and every job that mentions anything about informatics. But I am still jobless!!
I am thinking that with all the buzz regarding how much I am needed, there must be something that I am missing. Any suggestions?
(Anyone that helps me find a job will win a hand knitted scarf.)
