Where are the tech jobs at?Register Today!
- by ser2011 Jan 29, '11Hello!
I'm a third semester nursing student in a reputable BSN program in the Dallas area. I graduate December 2011!
I have been applying to numerous PCT/PCA position in the Dallas area at hospitals like Texas Health, Parkland, Baylor, Children's, etc...for a few months now, and I have gotten a few emails/calls back for more information but no interview.
Do you guys have any advice about applying for tech jobs as a nursing student in the Dallas area? I don't know why I haven't really gotten any interest...my GPA is good, I have been in clinical settings well over a year, and I have great references...
Thanks in advance!

- Jan 29, '11 by gobananas15I had one at parkland. when I applied, I didn't hear back for 2 months. They are still posting nursing student positions, so keep applying to all the ones that they post and try calling each week to see if they know when they are going to begin hiring. I applied last december and they called late january, and hired a group of student in feb and the start date was spring break for everyone. That may be what they are doing again? Good luck. I remember putting in a ton on applications everywhere for pct/pca jobs. I think it just takes time to find the right one.

They also have their scholarship going right now (they run out of money for it around May), so you might look into that. They give $1500 a semester to spend however you like in return for a commitment to work after graduation (one year for every two semesters they pay for). If you choose not to work there you simply have to pay the money back.
