I recently graduated from Eastern Kentucky University and I have really felt the harsh reality of how hard it is to find a nursing job in Lexington where I live. Unfortunately, I am not only competing with my fellow graduates from my school, but now I have to compete with University of Ky, BCTC, and Midway, just to name a few. The fact is, there are 4 hospitals in Lexington! That's a lot. However, here I am, unemployed 4 months after graduation. Is anyone else having this issue, or am I just unlucky? I have applied to too many jobs to count and have only been graced with 2 interviews (that didn't yield a job). I have another interview tomorrow, hopefully third time is a charm! Let me know your all's experiences and thoughts on this. I just want to get my career started in the thing I love doing most, caring for people.
