I am a brand new graduate LVN with no paid job experience in any field, and I'm desperately trying to find a job in the Bay Area. I've done some pretty extensive volunteer work in the past 6 years in hospitals and community health but again, I've never had any kind of paid job. I've been offered a job as a caregiver with two different companies but both postions pay around 14.50-15.00/hr, and they are both non-medical. I really need to get a foot in the door, but I'm wondering if this will count as experience when I try to apply for jobs after a year or so. Should I take these jobs, or try to hold out for an actual nursing position? I really don't know what to do. Any help or advice would be appreciated!
