I heard most institutes will require experiences upon apply for job as RN but how are we going to get that experience?

Did you take any Nursing Assistant (http://www.nursing-classes.net/cna-classes.html) course? In many colleges that would be a prerequisite for nursing studies. You can start working as a CNA, though frankly I am not sure you really have the time for that during studies. In any case that will give you a good start for experiencing hospital / Nursing life.

Obtain a nurse externship. While you are in school, you would work for a salary under the supervision of an RN and gain clinical experience. You can also gain experience in a specialty such as pediatrics.

I would definitely say that you should try to get an internship of some sort. Maybe try to find a nurse job (http://www.glassdoor.com/Job/nurse-jobs-SRCH_KO0,5.htm) location that you feel most comfortable with and see if they are willing to take you as an intern. This could possibly help you in landing a secure job after graduation, which would rock. Best of luck with all of your nursing challenges:elephant:!

1. Applying for a health related job while in nursing school is not available in our area. Aside from being a full time nursing student (you are required to focus on your studies for you to pass all the requirements of the course), there is also a surplus of new grad nurses in our area, so they are prioritized over students. There may be some jobs available, but not health related.

I volunteered at a local Nursing Home before getting a job at a hospital. The nursing home was about 10 minutes away and so the staff knew a lot of the nurses there which helped a lot. I recommend making sure your network of professionals is tight knit. There are also MeetUps in my area to help facilitate relationships.

Get a CNA job as a sitter doing private duty. You make better money than the hospital and with all that down time you can study.

Get paid to sit and study 90% of the time!

There are several places where freshers are preferred. Just check out the local job sites for more details.

I believe private hiring or private employers can help nursing students, nursing graduates, and RNs get the experience they need. There are online sources, such as Yournurses.com, that encourage health professionals and nursing students to register in their website. Private employers specify their criteria and qualifications and if it match the member's qualification, there is definitely a great chance of hiring. There is no harm in registering in Yournurses.com. Try it!

My ex-girlfriend worked as a CNA while she was in school to become an RN. She worked at a home and for an individual, usually overnight. She actually got more per hour working for the individual. She just helped around the house doing chores for him; so, it wasn't really nursing or health care related.

Oh, I meant to mention in the last post, have you considered the National Guard? You could go in as a medic. You'd also have the education benefits as well. If you go to a state school, there are even more benefits from most states for their Guard men and women.
