I recently graduated from a nursing school in NJ, moved to HI a month ago, took my boards and past in HI, and now have been on the job hunt for the last 2 weeks. I have been getting emails and call backs that there are no positions for new grads ANYWHERE IN HI. I was told my best bet is to get a Nursing Assistant position and wait with the other 200 + nursing assistants with a RN License for an opening.... Okay, I'll do whatever it takes, but I was just wondering from the 200 + nursing assistants with a RN license: how long have you waited or are still waiting for an RN position? Thanks and I appreciate all your replies.
