    if that's the surplus..hmmm maybe 5-10 more years. I got a chat with a nurse who's been in practice for 30 years. She told me that it was like the exact same thing when she graduated. Nursing was very much in demand back then and a lot of students took nursing but then by the time she graduated, there's already a surplus of nurses.

    I understand what you're going through. I'm in the same situation as you are right now. I graduated and passed the board year 2008, though I don't have NCLEX and other exams like you did. I trained at a local hospital but didn't got absorbed as a staff. I took seminars but that didn't help. I asked for help from people from position but to no avail. I had a few contractual jobs here and there but only lasted for a month. I applied for, and still applying for, non-medical positions such as promodizer and office staff, but after several times I followed up progress of my application, I was not accepted probably because I am overqualified. Like you, call centers and BPO jobs are not my thing but there's a high chance I'll try there. Currently, I'm still unemployed. I know the feeling, and it really sucks. Oftentimes I also pity myself, and adding the people who judge you for being too picky or being lazy and having no ambition in life made my feeling worse. I even think I have mild depression now.

    I believe I am not the one to give some wise advice, I just want to say that you are not alone in this bad time. Hope I made you feel somewhat better. And the others who responded to your post are right, we should not lose hope.
