Tips for Securing Registered Nurse Employment

Nurse Employment With the shortage of nursing being experienced by medical staff these days, you would think that registered nurse employment would be somewhat guaranteed to any RN. It is true that employment prospects for nurses are better than they've ever been but this of course doesn't guarantee that you will be able to quickly and easily find employment for yourself, or that the hospital or medical setting where you work will always keep you on staff. Let's go over some quick tips for securing registered nurse employment and you can keep these in mind when looking for work and when you have secured that great position.

First, keep in mind that securing registered nurse employment might mean stepping outside of your comfort zone when it comes to where you apply and how. While the majority of nurses work in hospitals, they are also found in doctor's private offices, at home health care service providers, at nursing care facilities, in outpatient care centers, and at employment centers that place nurses in all of these facilities! So you have many options open to you when it comes to registered nurse employment. To get your resume out there to as many prospective employers as possible, try contacting a placement agency for medical staff. You may be surprised at the different locations that hire RNs and may find that you actually like it better working at a doctor's office or outpatient care center than at a hospital. As with any other job applicant, securing registered nurse employment means expanding your horizons as to where you apply and what you expect by way of employment overall.

Another reason to consider applying at different locations other than actual hospitals for registered nurse employment is that many procedures are being done in doctor's offices on an outpatient basis. Doctors are investing in more equipment and are learning better ways of performing certain procedures that make them safer to perform in an office rather than a hospital setting. For example, using lasers to make certain incisions often means less bleeding by a patient so less risk of complications from blood loss. This means that more registered nurse employment will be needed in a doctor's office or clinical setting in the coming years, so you do well to consider that when looking for employment. Keep this in mind too as you consider improving your skills to make yourself invaluable to that doctor!
