Graduated Dec 2012 as LVN passed NCLEX at the end of Jan 2013. Throughout the year I have been on about 10 interviews, 3 "job shadowing" the Drs didn't want to hire someone they didn't click with, I understood and kind of liked that so I could see if I wanted in that type of office but at the same time not really picky just want some experience. So we are now in 2014, still no job and really no job postings recently. The hospitals are weaning out LVN's, the nursing homes want 2-5 yr experience as well as some dr office. I worked as phlebotomist and CNA for 10 years before getting LVN, medical field is really all I know and love, I can't go back to school yet due to no funds and not even sure I want to go through that again. Is there still hope in finding a job? I want to work in medical field should I just go back to phlebotomy? I am getting awfully depressed , I didn't think it would be this hard with having a medical background and feel my schooling was a waste of time. Anybody go through this? Any advise?
