Hospital Employment Question???

Nursing Students LPN/LVN Students


Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to gain employment in the hospital with no prior medical experience.? I am starting my program in Sept. however I have never worked in a hospital or in the medical field for that matter. I always worked in HR. I have been applying but never seem to get any response. I live upstate NY. I thought it would be good to gain some experience while I am in school. Any suggestions???

Is volunteering an option for you?

What kind of jobs are you applying for? Since you haven't started your LPN program, and you don't have CNA certification, you won't be eligible for many healthcare positions.

You could get jobs that are patient care attendants or sitter which are patients that are under watch for safety concerns.

I never thought about volunteering before. I was applying for non medical because I haven't started the LPN program and I am not a CNA either. I was hoping to get in to gain some experience but maybe because I have no background they aren't even looking at me for their clerical. I was just wondering.. Thanks
