I am graduating from nursing school in August of this year. My courseload is pretty light for the summer, however I realize I have to put a decent amount of time in reviewing/ preparing for the NCLEX which I will take in September. Does anyone have any suggestions for work experience for someone that is in my situation? I don't know if I can apply for a patient care assistant type of job for the summer in NJ hospital or if I have to have formal LPN training to do something like that. If anyone can help me out with this, I would greatly appreciate it. I would really like to get some more hands-on experience before graduation outside of my clinical time this summer.
Thanks very much!
