I'll be graduating in Dec 2010 with my BSN, and I'm trying to figure out when do I start preparing for graduation and applying for jobs? Obviously, I wouldn't start applying next year in Jan but I've heard people say to start applying 6 months in advance before you graduate.Also, how should I make myself more competitive to employers? I've been working as a CNA for about 1.5 years and I'm hoping to find a position as a nurse extern. Assuming I can't find a position, will CNA experience be enough? I'm getting really worried looking at how lots of new grads aren't having the best of time looking for a job. I'm hoping for move out of GA and somewhere different.I also really want to work nights and weekends. Will that give me a boost to employers?Any recommendations?
