Greetings ALL !
I'm scribing because I have become slightly frustrated with the process of trying to find my first job after successfully passing the NCLEX exam. I took the NCLEX exam last Wednesday and found out that I passed last Friday. I have been applying ever since I got my results and have applied to over 30 or 40 jobs up and down the FL coast [giggles] applying to big cities and small towns. I have come to realize that its NOT an easy task. Every where that I have applied requires that all important 1 year of experience, but how am I going to obtain that if no hospital is willing to give me that chance? I've tried looking for graduate nurse positions but in FL they seem to be rather scarce, however, I did come across two or three but they were for ICU and PCU. I applied and guess what? I was rejected on the grounds that I did not have experience. I mean do hospitals not see clinical experience during nursing school as experience? At this point, I am just ready to get my feet wet and start doing what I set out to do
