Yeah, you'll soon learn enough about nursing. Infact, you're learning about it now....unless they REALLY need you, they won't treat you that well...that includes calling you back and being decent enough to tell you that there are no positions available or only nights available and so on.
My BF is in business, what a different mentality! He gets calls back telling him about the position he applied to and what they are looking for. They don't do this in nursing. Your treated like a labour bee, not a professional looking for a job.
I graduated two years ago, I didn't find a job for 4 months! All the hospitals wanted a nurse with 1 year of experience! Hello! How was I suppose to get this experience if no one wanted to give me a chance??? I'm going through the same thing now, as I've just finished an OR program and am looking for a job....they all want you to have 1-2 years of experience!
This is what finally got me a job....Ortho floors and medical floors are the perfect place to start. I"d find out about a hospital - what each floor was, then I'd call the main directory and ask to be transfered to the "OR Managers line". I'd get transfered directly to the managers voicemail and leave a voice mail about who I am and that I am looking for any positions available.
Thats the best you can do...get directly to the decision maker. Isn't nursing lovely?
