They have finally put SO MANY nursing students through the nursing programs, that the shortage that existed here in Melbourne, when I started school almost 2 years ago, is now obsolete. You can't hardly even find a tech job now. Holmes has a hiring freeze, Wuesthoff has no positions (for techs at this time).......
So, those of us who went in a few years back when they were climbing the walls for nurses, now are going to have to "travel" elsewhere for work. In my area alone there is, Keiser, 2 BCC programs, and the nursing programs in Orlando..........sigh........
Anyone have any suggestions where to go now? I graduate in July and it is looking more and more bleak.
When I went to Florida hospital a few weeks ago ( tech position) there was only 1 new grad there with about 25 RNs that were experienced. A bunch of nurses shipped in from overseas also. I was thinking it was weird but I guess not. I am starting nursing school next year and I'm thinking that the plan is to move when I am done unless its easier for nurses to get a job by the time I'm done. The question is where to move? Is it a state wide thing ( heard there was a freeze in Tampa and Miami also). What to do.
