    The reality is that new grads ARE having a more difficult time being hired at the present time. Like every other industry, jobs in Health Care have been impacted by the current economy. Nurses are not leaving their positions - retiring, moving, changing professions etc, as much as they used to because of economic uncertainties. So there are fewer job openings overall. That being said, as the economy slowly improves, and as more nurses retire because they need to retire, there will be more jobs. SO for those who have found jobs, Congratulations! And for those who are still looking, keep the faith, keep a good attitude, keep your license intact, and keep up with what's going on in your area. Try to get your foot in the door by volunteering, or applying for a different job. Be creative and stay positive.

    I was a new grad a year ago. I was hired at 33 dollars an hour, plus 3 dollars an hour for responsibility pay. Night differentials on top of that.
