congrats to u guys.
i m going to graduate in dec 2008. i m so worried abt the job coz i heard it is so hard to get job as a new grad. is it true. can u please please give me some tips to find a job, i m really scared to death. thax.
do u think u can apply for nap positions?
usually, the hospital will ask you if you would like to work for them after you graduate since you established repore with them.
if not...then persistence
is the key...
u have to apply for ANY hospital, for any shift and cant be picky
with floors either...you can always switch out within 6 mo to a year, i believe...even put ur apps to rehabilitation centers if u have to..
hospitals only hire a certain amt of new grads per yr because new grads r expensive...sometimes, they dont have new grad programs yet coz they r new and prefer to hire someone with a bit of experience (like, San Martin)
but there are hospitals that have programs that if u commit a certain amt of yrs to them...they will pay for ur tuition and guarantee u a job...for example, North Vista.
