    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!!

    I think you might of misunderstood....CNN is doing an article about new grads not being able to find jobs.....the have partnered with AN and AN members to get their stories about their experiences trying to find a job. Some new grads look for up to 15-18 months.

    I think this will be a great way for the grads looking for work to be heard!
