    Have you tried calling HR to check the status of your application at the various facilities? Do you know anybody who works at these places that would speak favorably on your behalf? Pull any and every string you can.

    I have called and called again. All I keep hearing is that they are getting hundreds of apps for each position posted. That its very competitive out there. In my class they only people that have jobs are the ones that were techs during school. I did have an in or at least I thought so. My friend from class was to speak to her manager about me but never heard anything about it.

    Come to Montgomery. The Baptist Health System has a dire need of RNs. Check out the website baptistfirst.org Last time I checked they had around 40 entries for RNs.

    depends on where you are wanting to work. Some places are in desperate need of nurses, where as others are just over the brim full of applicants. Dont give up..i was determined that i would work in ICU at a specific hospital, so i started applying right after graduation in December. I interviewed a couple days after passing boards, and got the job. We were fully staffed for about a week, now we are struggling the find nurses. We are very short, but the deal it, we have plenty of aplicants, just hard to find experenced nurses.

    Seriusly, keep trying..dont give up on your dream job, even if it means taking something else for the time being and working toward it. Do you mind if i ask where you are trying to get on at??

    I have been applying to Brookwood and St. Vincents. UAB is on a freeze. I actually had a job at UAB prior to the freeze as that is where I did my preceptorship.

    One would think like that BUT with the way jobs are hard to come by these days one cant sit around and wait especially since everyone that just graduated is applying.

    the fact is there are too many nurses in alabama. everytime i ask someone what they're in college for they say Nursing. It's really not what everybody thinks. most people who are nurses just aren't cut out for it- no sympathy, no brains, etc. the job market isn't that secure.
