PT job to take during school/summer

  1. Hi,

    Not sure if this is the place to put this topic..and if it isn't, sorry!

    My name is Stacie! I'm from Kentucky and I am going to college in the Fall to become a RN

    I am wanting to get a part time job this summer and possibly even throughout the school year. I just have my high school diploma. What would you all recommend? I just want to get my feet wet. I'm a volunteer at a hospital in the NICU/Nursery. I LOVE IT but want to try working some place.

    I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this.

    I'm in my first year of nursing school and I became an EMT to give me some experience. I work part time and am planning to continue it for the next 3 years while I'm in school. There's also an on-campus rescue team that I'm a part of.

    I'd also recommend maybe becoming a CNA to get some experience. It would give you a good perspective on how to care for patients while working side by side with nurses. It will also make help you to realize how well you should treat your CNAs when you're finally an RN.

    Good luck!

    Unit secretary at the hospital that you are at would be good experience or go to their website if they have one and look at the job postings. There's a few that you would qualify for. Good luck.

    I think I may look into the Unit Secretary. I am really good with computers. Back in my second year of hs, I had the job at the dorm answering phones. I am going to find some job postings in my area.

    Thanks!
