I have officially finished spring semester of nursing school. At this time next year I will be graduated from nursing school with my bachelors in nursing. I am excited, but also nervous at the same time. I do not feel at all prepared (nor do I expect to feel prepared since this is all new). As the summer is approaching I have been looking for career opportunities in the hospital as a nursing assistant. Several nursing students at the college I go have found nursing assistant jobs at local hospitals, however, I am struggling to find one. My problem is I waited too long because I was so determined I would get the externship I applied for. I went on three interviews and I really thought I would get a position. Unfortunately, I was a little over confident. Since I did not get the externship I have been applying for nursing assistant jobs day by day. I have not received any callbacks, so I am not sure what else to do. I really wanted to gain some experience in the medical field and I thought this was the best way to do so. It seems like a lot of the hospitals I have applied to don't leave a number I can call to check on the status of my application (another problem I am having). I am not sure if I should just continue to apply, or if I should call human resources..? I don't want to be annoying, but unsure of what else I should do. Any advice? Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
