    How Can New Grad RN gain experience to land a job as a RN

    The same thing happened with me. Although it might not be what you want to do, nursing homes and rehabilitation hospitals will sometimes hire new graduates. I was lucky enough to be hired as a new grad at an acute rehab hospital and although a lot of places don't consider that med surg experience it's better then nothing and you leant to prioritize and deal with patients. Also if you really can't get a nursing job try to apply for a nursing assistant job just to get your foot in the door. A lot of hospitals are more likely to hire from within!

    Post Surgical/medsurg help

    I hope someone can give me some advice...I've been a nurse for a year and half but have only worked in an acute rehabilitation hospital on an orthopedic floor and in a month I'll be starting a per diem position in an acute care hospital on a post surgical/medsurg unit. Does anyone have any advice on skills I need to brush up on or what the most important things are I will need to know for this adjustment? I plan on devoting most of my time to the per diem position to get more experience.
