I was just wondering, how long does it take you to find a job as a rn after you get your license. I got my license 7/16/2006. Here's my story.............. I graduated 2005. I worked under a temporary license for 2 months. I sat for the NCLEX 08/2005 and didn't pass. I informed the hospital I was working for and informed them that I wanted to take the necessary time to study for the exam without working. One year later I pass the NCLEX. I was so happy. I thought that the day would never come. Now I have my permanent nursing license. I have applied for numerous positions.
I have had 2 interviews. I thought the interviews went great. Both employers I interviewed with, spoke as if i had the position. The first employer told me she had to look and see with shifts she had available and to call back by friday if I haven't heard anything back from her. I have called and called yet I haven't heard anything. It's been a month. The second interview hasn't been that long. It has been right at a week today. I have another interview in September. I hope that one goes good and they offer me a position. I called the temp service for nurses and was told that they require 2 years experience.
Right before sitting for the test, I signed up with a temp agency. I am currently working a mail order pharmaceutical company during data entry which pays $11/hour.
I don't know what to do. I would like to find a job close to my house but right now I am just wanting to get some experience. I feel like I am an undesirable employee. When will i find a job? I need a job. I am trying to keep the faith but it is getting hard.
