Get Hired

Beth Anderson, RN

You will be happy to find out that getting hired is truly “the easy step.” In nursing school, the employers come to you. as you will find yourself at many career fairs, with nurse recruiters from local hospitals trying to entice you with their cool pens and magnets. Do not be dazzled! Decide what you are looking for before the recruiters talk to you. Check out the NursingLink Career Center and search our jobs to see what’s out there. You can also use our Discussions to network with other nurses and find out who’s hiring. We even have a salary guide so you can see what you are worth.

Some things to consider include doing share time. Call the unit or floor where you would like to work and schedule some time to shadow a nurse. This simply means that you will spend some time observing a nurse at work so you can get a feel for how the unit operates, and whether or not you feel you will fit in.
