I want to be a nurse. I have my license and cannot get a job for the life of me. My big problem is experience. I tried getting experience as a nursing assistant but I could not get a job because the places I applied to required experience (go figure). I went on two interviews (both for the same place) and even though there is nothing that indicates that I have nursing experience on my resume they still ask me and seemed surprised by it (then they asked me if I tried to be a nursing assistant). I feel like I am stuck in the catch-22. I feel like there is something wrong with me. I am literally depressed because I cannot do the job I have dreamed of doing for so long. I have applied to a lot of places and even considered going out of state (I live in NJ and want to go to NY). Is there something wrong with me? It's like I have a sign on my face that says "do not call me back or hire me." Sorry I needed to rant it has been frustrating me for a long time.
