I've been an RN,BSN for a little over 18 months in the NeuroSurgery ICU of a Level 1 Trauma center. I've been applying to positions....all kinds of positions, at Erlanger and Memorial (although I prefer Erlanger since I am currently employed at a University hospital) but no luck yet. I've been hoping to relocate to Chattanooga since I was there in 2009 for a stage race put on by Rock Creek. Anybody got any ideas about how to get my foot in the door with the hospitals in the area? I know that online applications are the thing these days but sometimes I wonder how effective/efficient it is for both the applicant and the potential employer.

Just now seeing this...call HR and ask for the nurse recruiter. They are swamped with new grad apps right now. I emailed her when I put in an app and finally got a job after several months of applying.
