I graduated in 09 with my associates degree as an RN. I have struggled to find a good job and have been so discouraged that I have considered changing fields. My problem has been a lack of experience and BSN. When I graduated I hoped to get a position that had employee education assistance so I could afford to get my BSN. My student loan debit is about to the cap. As it is rift now, I can't afford to get my BSN but to be competitive, I really need it. So far I haven't found a position that will help me get it.
Most job postings are for travel, which requires experience, and contract work, which also requires experience and offer few benefits. When I went into nursing employers
were offering bonuses to new hires and would take new grads with no problem. I have a huge debt and very few employment options.
