I know most of us are concerned about getting through school first, but is anyone else concerned about finding a job once you graduate? In the past I've heard a lot about there being a nursing shortage, but now I hear there is an oversupply and new grads are struggling to find jobs.
Has anyone heard of the success rate of new BSN grads finding a job in Arizona?
Hi there- yes it's hard. Nursing is over saturated, new graduates nurses are beyond over saturated. There will be 200+ applicants for new grad acute care positions... It's gnarly.
I put in over 250 applications before getting hired. But it is possible. Just be prepared to become frustrated, save up some money if you can and apply long before summer (hiring in Phx hospitals DROPS just before and durin summer). Stay positive and stay current in nursing skills and issues.
