find first sas job

I am recently certified for base programmer.  I had a degree in computer science.  I have been RN working in hospital for two years and want to make a career change.  But it looks like employers are looking for experienced programmers.   How can I get experience and find the very first sas job?  Thanks.

Try 'volunteering' for a project that will capitalize on your nursing background that also can use your data skills.  Touch base with the medical informatics dept or whoever runs clinical trials at your facility -they would value your nursing background and expertise and you can get your experience.  If that is not possible try to go to your nearest university based medical center and offer the same.
