    o h my I feel your pain!! I have been looking for 10 months and probably go to 4 interviews a week! I never thought finding a job as a nurse in FL would be nearly impossible. I am so behind on all my bills and xmas with kids ugh. Just keep trying, keep going on every jobsearch they have on the net. Email or go to places if they dont have a website. Be persistant and try to keep your head up and dont get depressed. There are a lot of us out there going for the same job and it comes down to what makes YOU special. You have to have a unique quality that sets you apart from everyone else. Think about what it is (even make it up) an d work on it. You will eventually find something. Keep your eye on the prize! I just got a call back from a cath lab that turned me down, but I kept checking on them and it turns out that the person who got the job didn't work out so now I got it. I am so excited I could die. But I am proof that if you just keep trying you will land something, DON'T GIVE UP! Jill

    Also be prepared to lower your standards if you have to just to get something, and then you can look for something better but at least you will have an income while you look. Jill

    Have you considered other areas of nursing m/s, neuro, to just get in the hospital and perhaps transfer to OR or cardiac tele floor.

    I know for a fact that almost all hospitals hire new grads with NO experience into medsurg all the time. Go to careerbuilder and every other online job sites and just apply for everything. You never know who is desperate and gets you app at just the right time. Persistance is key. Also check craigslist. Good luck!:spin:

    What is your immigration status? Do you have a greencard? Are you making it clear to prospective employers that they don't have to sponsor a visa?
