    You might think about calling Seton and St Davids systems because i know they are on hiring freezes for nurses. Not sure about CNAs/Techs.

    I've applied for several CNA positions and haven't even had a phone call. I talked to one recruiter at Seton, and she said that in many of their hospitals the only CNA positions are PRN, and applicants must be willing to work nights.

    From what I've heard, jobs in Austin are very few. I'd have a job lined up before I moved here. I've met several people who have moved here because they thought the streets were paved in gold only to find out that it's a lot harder here than it was where they came from.

    Y'all might think about applying at :shudder: Austin State Hospital. They are pretty much always hiring Psych Nurses Aides. Its not the most appealing environment to work in, but it's also not hard to get a job there. On the plus side, it's a state job, so the benefits are unrivaled.

    I'm not so much into working psych. I used to teach kids with emotional disturbance, and I just can't see myself working in psych. It's just not good for my own mental health. But thanks for the suggestion. I'm sure other folks can use the tip.
