I am sitting on my couch unemployed and exhausted from applying to over 500 jobs since I graduated in December 2010. I then got to thinking there's such a large number of RNs out there especially unemployed ones that we should be able to get some attention. I would think something as simple as a bunch of nurses contacting their senator/governor with some data could put pressure on them and bump the priority up a notch. I'm sure they are aware of what's happening but in the meanwhile people have no way of paying of their loans... Anyways i wanted to start a poll an actual poll with this focus, but I don't have premium member services. if anyone with premium member service is interested in taking on this project please do. The defining categories 1) current unemployed RNs 2)RN employed 0-6 months s/p graudation 3)RN employed 6-1 yr s/p graduation. then for those interested you can use this resource along with the endless research out there on this matter to write a letter to you governor. just a thought.
