Question
Ellen, a male register nurse, graduated from nursing in U of M this Summer. But he hardly find a job without any experiences. His name was on waiting lists. Can you suggest any ideas. Thanks.

Answer
My suggestion is that you should be patient. Sometimes employers need people with some years of experience before they can be employed. However, there are some employers that would think of age, good grade, ability to convince during interviews that you can do the job, etc.

Besides, if you are in a hurry to land a job, you may consider adding some more portfolios to what you have right now. You may go for BLS, ACLS, ATLS, etc. You can also join some volunteer services or NGOs just to get a few months of practical experiences.
