How do I make myself more marketable?

November 11th, 2021

Start out by establishing your specific destination/goal. To whom will you market yourself- Crit Care, Leadership, public health, pre-hospital? If you know where you want to be, you’ve completed one of the biggest decisions already!

After that, see what credentials you already possess and which you need in order to reach that goal. Join various org’s- LinkedIn, job apps, nursing association websites (or whatever your field is, i.e. EMS, hospital, hospice, etc) and display your talent.

Reach out to recruiters and be selective. Do your homework on the companies/hospitals. I know someone who started applying to nursing residency programs halfway through a nursing program (a year earlier than most). She started an ICU residency at a Very prestigious east coast hospital the week after she passed her NCLEX.
