My advice to you is to get a nursing assistant job at a local hospital close to your college. Those hospitals want students as aides because they will already know how their systems work and will hire you in a heart beat if you make a good impression on your manager.
Another option is to make friends with your clinical instructors throughout your nursing student career. You'll be working at a variety of hospitals, and by the time you're a senior (if you are working your way through a BSN program), manager will notice your enthusiasm and hire you then. This is what happened to me. I had my senior practicum for 6 months at a hospital twice a week, the staff loved me and put a good word to the manager, and I was offered a position 2 months before I graduated!
It's all about connections. Show you love what you do, act enthusiastic, work hard, make friends, and there will be jobs open. Build upon a solid Medical-Surgical knowledge based when you first graduate, and take it from there.
