"Specialize."
Take qualified specialized course eg: Critical Care, Emergency, Cardiac/Telemetry, Hemodialysis, Oncology, Palliative Care, Orotho, surgical, peri-operative, PAR, GI, and hundreds more. Do your homework on the many areas you can specialize in. Know the demand for those positions and know which courses qualify for the positions you are interested. Beware of inferior courses offered by inferior schools. Take your classes from a very reputable college. Once you have succeeded, no one can ever take away your education and/or compete with you unless they are equally qualified with the same education. You will always have a job! Personally I started with Cardiac/Telemetry, then multi-system Intensive Critical Care, and then finally Hemodialysis. I have always had my choice of positions throughout my 29 year career and still going strong. It's lots of hard work but the effort is worth every bit of the hours and hours of studying. Good luck with you career.
