    Well, unfortunately, I am considered "remote" which means like "contractual" employee and they don't have to offer insurance or other benefits that way.

    HI there i was just
    doing a search on unemployed nurses. Just wondering if you have had any progress in a positive direction. I am a RN of 3 yrs experience and cannot find a job anywhere. This is very frustrating!

    Hi, I am a 15 year nurse and I am unemployed from a full time position. I cannot seem to find a job. I have experience, and I am certified is many areas, but no potential job. I have applied over and over for work. Gees, I am a nurse where did the shortage go? All they want to offer me is PRN and Per diem or Part time no benefits, means no insurance. Right now I have to accept jobs where ever I can even in LTC facilities with G tags or troubles and who do not care to orient you, high risk potential. I saw a sign at a major hospital recently it said only experience accepted, no new grads??? What is happening no new grads? Will this continue to spiral out of control? I've never ever in all my 15 years had this kind of trouble with employment?

    Yep, lets just face it the economy is not good I too have been an RN for 13 years and have had a great career doing ER, Critical Care, Med Surg. when I would get bored I would just change my area of nursing and learn something new. Hence now I am exp. in all areas of Nursing have great references but, the only Job I can find is in Homecare and now have been out of the hospital arena for 8 months. Staffing recruiters call me an bug me telling me they can get me an assignment only to find after they reference me etc. etc. they cant hire me because I have been out of the hospital setting for over 6 months????? So, I refuse to work with any of them any longer as they seem to just be humoring me??? Maybe they get paid per phone call who knows they remind me of car salesman??? Anyways I have learned alot in this unemployment phase dont take a good job for granted...And I have been able to spend some time with my kids which has been great!!! Learned how to plant a garden, and all kinds of other Martha Stewart essentials LOL....Oh and have time to post threads on nursing web sites.....Anyways hang in there fellow Nurses look to homehealth, childrens hospitals (they seem to have new grad programs), get your acls, and pals (this helps)...I apply weekly everywhere and get a couple interviews a month??? Currently my goal is to get in with the VA or IHS as this has the best benefits and retirement of any nursing JOB...it just takes forever but, I am finally getting calls so, hopefully my next post will be to let you all know I have landed a VA job??? I can tell you if I get one I wont be moving around anymore will stay at that job forever!!! LOL

    Why would they pay a nurse with 15 years experience $5.00-$10 more per hour than they could pay a new grad and basically trap them there for awhile?

    The economy is not helpful towards nurses right now. We are all struggling.
