Ugh Experience

  1. I dont understand employers. I am a new Lpn grad and I am applying everwhere possible whether they are hiring are not and all I hear is "u need 6mons-1yrs." how I am to get it if no one gives me a chance. I am 32 and when I was in high school u could find a job without degree. but now they say get a degree and when u pay all that money no one wants to hire. I dont get it. Nursing programs advertise about nursing shortage but they are just lying to get your money. There are 100 lpn/Rn going after the same position in one facility. Even experience nurses are having a hard time. I'm ready to work so I can make money while making a difference.

    My sentiments exactly. And it's very frustrating, how can one gain experience if not given the chance.

    Just a suggestion...little things add up...I hope when you apply you actually spell out the word "you" instead of writing "u"...these things matter...and, hang in there..take what you can even perdiem or PT to get a foot in the door.
