Best site to look for LVN jobs?

  1. Hi, I'm an LVN, no problem getting nursing jobs before but I think I'm searching the wrong places. I always look into ocjobfinders.com or careerbuilders.com. Any other recommendations for good nursing jobs search? Looking to work somewhere else.

    Believe it or not, go to MY SPACE.com and you don't even have to register, on the opening page, you can do a job search. That site alone takes LVN jobs from many websites and lists them all on one site. Another good one sometimes is CalJobs, I can send you the page if you can't find it. Those are the two that stand out the most in my memory....

    I'm probably the old-fashioned one, as I have always looked in the employment section within the classified ads of my local newspaper for jobs.

    I'm having a really hard time finding a job. I've never been to so many interviews in my entire life. I'm just not getting hired. Somebody please, HELP! =)

    Another place to look is craigslist.org. I'm having trouble finding a good LVN job. I just got licensed in April of this year. In May I got hired at a nursing home, but that place was a disaster, no DSD to top it off. I was given about 47 residents to pass meds to, and the DON didn't make herself available. She hired me on the spot, but now I know why, the LVNs were quiting, and I did too on the 15th day. Some of the other nursing homes that I applied before this one, didn't take my application, because they were not interested in hiring new grads. I'm IV certified, and most of the hospitals aren't giving me a call back. I passed (with a high score)the LA County exam for LVN, and waiting for one of the county facilities to call me. In the meantime, I have a partime job, working on a school case, but if the child is absent, I don't get paid. This past week I interviewed for a non-profit, clinical position but hey want to pay me $14.64. They are low-budget on their salaries, the MDs are volunteers. The nursing homes out in this area start between $18-$21. I just don't feel I want a nursing home job, after my last one (6 LVNs in total quit the month I quit).
