I am a new grad that graduated in May 2009 and that lives here in Connecticut.
I personally am having a really hard time finding a job.
How are the rest of the new grads doing?
How much should I be asking for?
Ive taken my NCLEX already and passed so I do hold a licence just not a real job.
Please tell me about your experiences.
I went to school in RHODE Island. I think the job market is worse there then here and in Mass. I live in groton which is near new london, norwitch and mystic. I just can not get backus or lawerence and memorial to call me back. which are the new hospitals in my area.
It is trully a downer.

Quote from Bobbkat
I'm in Groton too. Do you know when Backus is accepting applications for their next GN residency program? Also, when it would start?
I just keep telling myself that anywhere is better than Michigan right now, at least. And at least my husband has a good job. And at least there ARE job postings, even if you have to fight with 700 applicants to get an interview. In Michigan there aren't any postings to even apply for. Sigh....I graduated in 2003 with a degree in El Ed, but there were no teaching jobs in MI (our economy TANKED way before this recession was ever announced), went to Nursing school thinking I would finally have a job. How FRUSTRATING! Sorry...just venting.
Good luck everyone! I hope that you are all able to find positions soon.
The nurse recruiter will not return my calls about the residency program.
