I am a RN with a BSN looking for a job, in Houston or San Antonio. I graduated in December 2011, got a job in April 2012 quite in July 2012, because I quickly realized this was not the specialty for me. I should have not settled for anything and I should have started in either the basics (Med-Surg), or one of the specialties that I really wanted which includes (Pedi, Neonatal, Nursery, or L&D. So far I have applied for Memorial Hermann, Methodist, HCHD, & a hospital in San Antonio. These positions start in Janurary or February of next year. I have not received any calls yet about interviews. Maybe too soon, I dont know...... I have student loans that I still have to pay for and other expenses, and I am unemployed. Is there any other places hiring new grads (as I am still considered one)? Please help me!
There was a good reason for me leaving my last job. I am not just applying for residency/internships, I have been applying for others too. The reason why I asked about the graduate nurse/Internship programs is because those are the jobs who actually seem to respond back to me. There is no reason why I would need to tell people the reason for leaving. This was not a mistake, and it was better that I left. There is no need to judge me, when you do not know the whole story. But anyway, if you are willing to actually answer my question. This is so greatly appreciated.
