Hey everyone, my name is Jah. I graduated from Flinders University last year. I haven't much luck in applying an RN so far. I wasn't a PR before graduation so really didn't get any luck for the GNP programs. I've been working on and off as a carer, basically any thing I can pick up. Most nursing agency I tried to apply turned me down due to the lack of experience (they require at least one year experience.) I'm really stressed out because I'm worried about my registration. Then I came across this forum so I'd really much like to grab any advise I can. I know experience is important for the health care industry, but is there any approach for minimum experience? And what are the particular things to take in mind for job hunting, CV and interviews?

Thank you for your time!

I really enjoyed reading your discussion post.  I can relate to your post because my last semester of my nursing school, I was wondering what job I would have and how I was going to get it.  I was fortunate in that when I was doing my last internship, the boss there asked me if I would stay on and work part time with them and I said, "Yes."  Then, about a year and a half later, I became a full time worker with that company and I worked there about five years full time after that.  So, doing volunteer jobs or internships helps get your foot into the door and then gets a step into the hiring process.  Another thing to consider is to look on job search engines, look online for nursing recruiters, look for home health agencies, and do research on what specialty that you would like to do.  I wish you the very best and please let us know if you receive the job that you would like to have.

The tips for nursing job hunting are the following:

1.  Know what type of job that you are looking for in the nursing profession.

2.  Understand the steps into getting that particular job.

3.  Do lots of research as to what nursing specialty that you would like to achieve.

4.  Work with a nursing recruiter.

I hope tha
