    Be sure to tell your stories, new grads. The public would benefit from hearing the raw truth.

    I just graduated in December, and have a job already. All I have to do is pass boards. And I had no insider help-i didn't know somebody at this hospital. In fact lots of my school buddies already have jobs and we are all still waiting to take boards. I wish everyone's story turned out this way.

    submitted my story took me 6mths, and its still only part time no insurance... been 6 mths since i had insurance! not sure what to do now... still looking for a full time job.

    Also, i think finding a job quickly depends on your location and amount of nursing school in your area.

    I have over 60 applications out in a 1.5 hour radius of my home. I have not received any offers of interviews or even any calls. I have only received e-mails saying they are going for someone with more education/experience for the positions. I have re-enrolled in school to receive my BSN in hopes that this will give me an edge above some of my competitors. Good luck everyone!!
