I am a recent BSN graduate from Michigan (May 2010). I am aspiring to be a Labor & Delivery nurse. I have applied to many positions within MI, WI, TX, DE, & CA with zero luck. My main focus is finding an OB job in WI. This is my absolute dream career; must I wait for my dream job or do you think I am able to get this job right out of nursing school? I need advice, a reality check, or words of wisdom. Any Labor & Delivery Nurse Recruiters out there?
I don't mean to be frustrated, but I feel like not many hospitals want a new graduate nurse, especially one that has zero nursing experience (and no license). I was never a CNA, LPN, or had an externship (mine got canceled a week before it began). Maybe I am being impatient; I graduate in a week. ha.
Just don't give up because maybe it's not the right time for you. There are so many chances that you could reach that dream of yours...just believe in yourself and learn to wait. Good luck to you and I know that someday you will become a OB nurse...you have all the potentials...just learn to trust and wait because He knows whats best for you.
