Oct 23, '13I understand you better of what you can imagine, we are in the same boat....I graduated on May this year, ADN, got my license on July, more than a 100 applications in hospitals, rehab centers, clinics, doctor's office, LTC, hospice, dialysis, etc...and I'm still waiting for a call...here in south Florida it is very hard almost impossible to find an RN new grad position in a hospital...it is not what you know...it is who you knows...it is very depressing and sometimes I feel like all the hard job that I did during my nursing school to graduate with high honors is useless, I was accepted to begin my BSN on January...in the meantime I will get a cashier or waitress job while I work in my BSN, but I will continue applying in every single place that have an RN open position, hopefully some day I will get an opportunity!!
Oct 23, '13Quote from michelle9655YAYYYYYI finally have a job.... An amazing job at the best hospital in the state- Northwestern Memorial. However it was my first hospital job and I only got hired at the end of July. It took me 9 months total to find my first job and I applied to every single hospital in Illinois, and then also hospitals in Iowa Indiana and Wisconsin. Awful. Haha but I have a lot to be grateful for now and now I will be "experienced" so I hope I don't ever have to go through that again.
