I was in your shoes just a month ago. I got my certification and it took me about 3 weeks to find a job, so I am a new CNA. Anyhow, I just mapped all the nursing homes in my area, because hospitals usually only accept online apps, and went in person to the nursing homes, filled out applications and pretty much harassed them until they would hire me. In the days we live in now, jobs just dont land in your lap anymore, you- must be a go getter and be determined to get hired. Thats how I was. I felt like it was taking me forever to get employement but ended up hired one month after my certification. If I can do it, you can too. I was hired at a popular nursing home that required experience and I had none. Most nursing homes don't care if you have experience or not. My goal is to work in a hospital as well but in order to get experience I am happy that I have my job at a nursing home, despite it being hell sometimes...anyways good luck.
