Lucky, I have experience and I can't even find a job.
Hey! I just got a job at Boston Medical Center in the float pool...oh and I'm from WA, so it is going to be a BIG change, but I'm pumped!!! :)
For the new grad float pool? When did you hear?
That's awesome, congrats!
First of all, CONGRATS! Second of all, how did you manage that? I did a med-surg rotation at Lahey and was told there was a hiring freeze - only internal applicants would be accepted and definitely NOT a new grad. Lucky you!
Are you a new grad? Do you have experience?
i am a new grad too and the place where i was working as a nursing assistant did not take my application as an Rn that serious so i am ******....i wanna work at lahey clinic too! howd u apply? online?

Did you leave on good terms when you where a nursing assistant? Any place you apply will be looking to them and asking you why they didn't hire you so you better have a good answer.
Job market is very tough. Hope you have great clinical references from instructors.
they just said they have to look into other applications which i am really mad about. i have no bad record from them...i dont know, maybe the manager just didnt like me...
How was your evaluation ? Your yearly evals? It seems like they don't want to hire you and I would be afraid they might not give you a good reference? When you left did they tell you that you would be eligible for rehire? Most places value long term employees, I am surprised they let you go after you passed your boards.
there was a change in management, they director who hired me while i graduated from nursing school was really nice. you see im a foreign nursing grad and when i told her my situation she hired me as a nursing assistant even though i did not have any certification. its took me ten months to process my nclex registration and preparing for the test and i worked with them for ten months. unfortunately, this director got fired the day of my boards and when i found out i passed, the next in charge said this which really hurt me.
I would suggest you find our where the old director is, ask her for a reference and when you apply explain the situation. Perhaps there are open positions where your old director is. I also suggest whatever position you get you stay in for at least one year, staying in a job for months does not look right. Jobs are very hard to come by in MA and you are competing with nurses who have a long employment history with great recommendations.
When people call me for a reference they ask several questions, are you on time and the longevity of your past positions. As a foreign grad, you need to think of professional references also.
