Help with ideas for experience

I know we have all heard about how hard the job market is for new grads.....I'm right there now. I can't work as a CNA in Florida because I have already passed the Boards :( I am currently volunteering at two free clinics in the area, but I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas about how to get marketable experience while job hunting?

Try a long term care facility. This is a great place to start!

I am in the same boat. I haven't had time to volunteer (which sounds bad for a nurse) but I have been applying at home visiting agencies. My advice is to find one where they will send you to facilities to train. I signed up with a registry which means I come with the skills and experience I have and will have to find my own training elsewhere since they do not provide. Also just keep applying everywhere else because you never know. You may land the job that wants an eager graduate that they can mold and keep. Keep your fingers crossed :D
