    Jobs are hard to get right now. As far I've learned so far in life it's always been about who you know especailly when it comes to getting a job.

    I am not an RN yet but I have been volunteering in the same ICU for 3 years now, once a week. I have been offered multiple jobs throughout the hospital. I will take a job as a CNA when I have 1 year of school left(working once a week) and then have no doubt I will be hired as an RN when I graduate.

    Everything I have heard from all the nurses I work with is once you get "in" (in the hospital, any job) you will be good to go once you graduate. But the hospitals all hire from within and you are going to be hard pressed if you don't already work there.

    So my advice would be to get in as anything, CNA is prob your best bet, after 6 months or so I bet your gold.
