Hello all !! I am a newly grad RN with load of past medical experience. I've work in dialysis for the past 7 yrs as a dialysis tech prior to becoming a Rn. I became a nurse because I love taking care of my patients and it makes me feel like I can make a difference in someones life. However since graduating the employment world have been really cruel !! No one wants to give a new grad a chance !! I think everyone has forgotten what it feels like to be a newbie and needing a chance to prove their selves. My question is ... how can someone get experience if no one is willing to give them a chance?
My friends and myself are at our witt ends!! It seems as, if you don't have a inside connection, then you don't have a job !! I was an excellent student, and excelled clinically. I was an excellent dialysis tech and excelled in my field. I'm confident and I know will excel as a nurse as well, given the opportunity. Sometimes I feel like I went to school for nothing... I quit my job to continue my education, thinking I would have better opportunities, now I have no job, no money, and no opportunities. I'm faithful things will get better ! If anyone have any suggestion please feel free to comment. I appreciate all support given.
