Im back home for the summer and I do not have a job. What is the best option for a nursing student looking to do some work in the hospital other than volunteer?

The best thing for you would be a nurse technician/nurse assistant/patient care assistant/patient care nursing assistant. Call HR or Nurse Recruitment at the hospital you are trying to apply to for more information. In most cases you don't have to be a CNA to have the job; in lieu of the CNA they usually want at least 1 year of experience in nursing school with successful completion of 1 or 2 clinical rotations (usually med-surg).
Or you could try getting a job as a unit secretary.
