Hi, 

So i graduated from nursing school with my RN-BSN two years ago and have been steadily searching for a job. I have nursing licenses in both California and Washington state. I have also been working as a caregiver and part time RN for a home health care company. Even though i've had a couple of interviews i'm still getting the same 'While your skills are certainly impressive, we have decided to pursue other candidates for this position.' or variations of.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can get a hospital job as an RN?!

If you desperately need the money sooner than later (RN pay), try SNF, long term acute care facilities (which usually they have pretty high acuity patients, vents, IVs, etc.) and even try psych hospitals or behavioral units within a hospital (psych is such a valuable experience needed in ALL aspects of nursing - skills can be learned fairly quickly). Also, I suggest you join our Facebook group called RN Interview Tools! If you aren't getting interviews, it's probably your resume.

I highly suggest you check our group out. I have gotten an interview (out-of-state though) less than 12 hours for an RN residency Level 1 Trauma with a recruiter willing to consider me for October (no sign-on bonus) when I applied last month, no RN license yet - I grad in August. I think it was the help of that FB group! 🙂
