Wow, what a monumental mistake I have made. I threw away a decent job to go back to school. I went back and got by BS in nursing. Now I am a licensed RN BSN with no future. When I went back to school I was told how the hospitals were screaming for nurses and how I would be able to "write my own ticket". Well, that is ********. There is not and never was a nursing shortage. NOBODY WILL HIRE A NEW GRAD. Unfortunately, I was not the only one to fall for the RN shortage line. 1000's of RN new grads are being spit out each year creating a mass oversaturated pool of unemployable, inexperienced RNs. Your local hospitals are too ******* cheap to have new grad programs so they import foreigners, most of which are Filipino, instead.
So, now what? I have a degree that is useless--my prior job is gone and I have no marketable job skills after 5 years in college. I have never been so disappointed in my life.
Unemployed future "stale grad" with no prospects RN
