I FINALLY got accepted into a residency program on a GI/oncology unit. I'm extremely excited, however, the program doesn't start until June, and I graduated in January. Any advice for what I should be doing in between now and then? I really don't feel like I can wait that long, however, I know that it's the right thing to do.

See about volunteering at a Fire Department. You might have to take a couple of NIMS certs. first. Or, see if you can do ride out's with an ambulance company.

You don't have much in the way of skills yet to lose if you are a new grad. It will all come back to you. Don't sweat it.
