Job when finished with school...

Specializes in nursing home, clinic, homehealth.

Do people really have to go out looking for jobs when they graduate. Someone told me that employers come to your school searching for you so to speak. Did any of you have them come to your school and offer you a job?

It will depend where you live. At my school the students attend job fairs a few months before graduating. They are bombarded with offers and are able to talk to recruiters.

Hope it's like this when I graduate......lol

My school was a hospital based program, so we had recruiters from Human Resources come and speak to us. I was fortunate to talk to the manager where I did my externship, and she offered me a job. It's a med/surg floor, and I'm so excited.

I don't know if we ever get a real job fair, so to speak, but I know that our clinical sites always have their eye out and will extend offers.

I would love to have a job lined up before school ended-what a comfort!

During our very last week of school, hiring representatives from a few hospitals, home health agencies, and other facilities came to my school and spoke to our class throughout the school day. They were not hiring us at that moment because we did not have a license yet, but they were there to tell us to apply at their companies upon receiving licensure since they welcomed new-hire LVNs without experience. This was called 'career day'.

It seems different for RN and LPN's . Seems most RN's have jobs set up before they graduate. LPN's are on thier own to get jobs around here.

We had a job fair... tons of people were there representing places to work. I already worked at a hospital as a nurse tech and now I will be starting my position as a GPN next week... when I pass the boards I will be an LPN working on the med surg floor (which is where I've worked the whole time). They don't have a LOT of LPN positions available at hospitals around here but there are definitely some. LTC offers more money (around here) but I want at least that year of med surg experience.

By all means send out resumes as you approach graduation. I had two job interviews and two offers prior to graduating as did a number of my classmates.

Dont you need your state license before you can begin working as an LPN?

Of course you do but we are talking about getting offers before we graduate.
