I am graduating school in a week and am already becoming VERY discouraged with the Job Search. I have basically eliminated all hope of getting a regular RN position and have come to the conclusion that I am pretty much only going to be considered for a nurse residency program. Have already been rejected from one residency program and they only engaged in a simple (unexpected) phone interview with me before eliminating me from the residency program recruitment completely. I am interested in pediatric oncology...but obviously willing to do anything I can get a job in! I have an extensive resume, including a student nurse internship, volunteering at a children's hospital, and CNA work in addition to participating in a special nurse preceptor unit at my school where I worked directly under the supervision of an RN on a med surg unit all semester (had to qualify to be accepted into this). I am going to take my NCLEX ASAP but I would like to be considered now to secure a job for myself....any ideas??
