I Need a Job

I've been trying to get a job as a student nurse tech. Unfortunately it's very competitive... because the hospital is located right next to the school. EVERYONE applied.

I interviewed for the ER spot and didn't make it. I have another interview for the PCU, and here's hoping I make that one. Unfortunately the interview isn't until June 5th. Crap, I REALLY want this job. But I feel like half the summer is going to be gone before I get hired anywhere. I'd look other places, but I don't want to commit somewhere only to be called back in.

This is really lame. My scholarship ran out last semester, so I need some serious money before fall.

I'm getting very impatient.

That's the only available hospital?

Not the only available hospital... just the only one with the Student Nurse Tech job. There are only two main competing systems in the area, only one takes students, and there are 5 positions open in the area. So, obviously it's quite competitive.

I could try to do pharmacy or something if I was dead-set on working in a hospital, but that's not as relevant to what I'll actually be doing one day.

Have you considered doing some home health as a CNA? Many agencies will use advanced nursing students. The driving is a hassle, but it can be pretty cool and you can set your own schedule.

How interesting, I've never heard of doing that. I've almost nailed a job in the hospital though in Oncology, so here's hoping.

I totally feel you on the money issues. I'm in an accelerated BSN program and we agreed not to work during our 18-month journey. Needless to say it's been rough just living off the savings, financial aid and handouts but at the same time it's been easier not having to worry about studying like crazy AND working. Hmm.. anyhow, hang in there; I'm sure you'll secure something--nurses (and student nurses) aren't troopers for nothing.. ;)
