Thanks for your interest. I applied to about 6 hospital positions.....A Kaiser personnel RN called. She said I needed 6 months current experience before they would hire me. Kind of a catch 22, we can't hire you without RECENT experience so where do you get that? I am in the hunt for a state position but they are very slow at filling them. I started the process in October went through one round of interviews in Dec., ranked no.1 and am still waiting for round #2! Thank goodness my husband has a great job and we are not depending on me getting a job to survive! I have a friend in home health placement....she said they would have to place me as an LPN.....that made no sense, you can't get RN experience working as an LPN! So I search apply and wait! I did get my BLS!
