Worried...Senior nursing student

  1. 0 Hello everyone,
    I'm a senior in nursing school,going into my last semester.Wooohooo..I'm becoming very concerned with the job market,especially after reading so many posts. I will be looking for a job in the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs. I'm a great student GPA (atleast 3.0),previous health related bachelors degree, no hospital work experience, but excellent community service. I was wondering if there are any new grads or nurses out there that know of any hospitals/facilities currently welcome to new grads?????I really don't know where to start looking.
    Any feedback or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Blessings to All:redpinkhe

    First of all: CONGRATS!!!!! Now reality, the job market stinks. It will be beneficial to have a previous health related bac. Degree. 3.0 is great! I'm not saying anything against that. However , a lot of residency programs won't accept less than a 3.5. Get your letters of reccommendation now. Work on those. Start applying now. Start volunteering at hospitals, call nurse recruiters ask if you can shadow nurses for a day. I wish you the best of luck, just be ready to take something you dont really want. Don't ever give up on what you want just keep a very open mind. I don't mean to be a buzz kill but you did it any no one can take that away from you. Congrats!!!!!!
