Is this really even possible?? The area attended school and completed clinicals in has hiring freezes at their local hospitals. The region is saturated with RNs, especially in the town I went to complete my degree. I have applied at every hospital within an hour radius. I've even thought about moving across state lines, where the job market is slightly better, but I don't have the money saved up to do something like that right now.
CAn anyone offer advice on HOW to get a job in an acute care setting?!! I'm in LTC/"Skilled", have 25 patients, and don't like it one bit. Just the number of people is too high and idc if others say their acuity is lower. If something goes wrong, it goes wrong! The #s are too high & I don't have enough supportive staff.
I'm a new grad and supposedly the "RN supervisor" when I'm at work. There is one other nurse on site, and she is a new grad LPN.
Please help me, I need to work in a hospital
