Hospital job with no experience


Specializes in ICU. Has 10 years experience.

I am hoping to apply for Nursing School in Spring 09. I would love to find a job in a hospital before then, but I have no hospital/medical experience. Are there any jobs out there that I would qualify for and not need to take more classes on top of what I'm already taking. I've heard before that a Unit Clerk is a great place to start if you have no experience, but someone told me that once hired as a Unit Clerk, they make you take some classes. I dont have time for that - I'm already swamped with the pre-req classes I'm taking now.

I would really like to have my foot in the door somewhere before started Nursing School. Even if its just part-time.


Yes, I'm sure you can get a job with no experience. Be sure to tell them you are either a nursing student or a pre-nursing student (depending on where you are at the time). If one or two places say no, keep looking.

There are lots of openings, just convince them that you are good and you will stay there at least 2-3 years and then you hope to work there as an RN.


I've had no luck getting my foot in the door with the hospitals. Alot of the unit secretary positions want previous experience. I am finishing my first semester of the RN program and alot of the hospitals will hire students as CNA's after first semester. Just look around and see what's out there. It might be helpful to contact their nurse recruiters and see what they say.
