so lets do something about it. obviously we are all in the same boat here............ starving, no jobs and student loans coming due! let's help ourselves............. post how you feel and then we can print everything and send to her!
graduated in May after being in school for 6 years. I passed NCLEX in July.... so I am a resistered nurse. I worked at a boy scout camp this summer as a resistered nurse for $300.00 per week for 40+ hours. I took that opportunity, not for the money, but to get out of the house! I applied and applied and applied everywhere I could think of. I never even had an interview, or the courtesy of a response. I got to the point that if one more person said " I thought there was a nursing shortage" or "have you applied blah blah blah", I was going to run screaming out of the room. I am working now, but that is besides the point. I have to ask........... WHAT NURSING SHORTAGE?????? NO nursing shortage in CT, just a shortage of NURSING JOBS! This state probably has hundreds if not thousands LOOKING FOR WORK. Check for yourself if you do not believe me. Thanks for listening.
