    Yes, but we don't know that she didn't work while in school. Lots of people do. She got a job at BK--didn't note how many hours. If she had worked a lot of hours while in school, she could make up any difference in pay to a certain degree. At any rate, this varies from state to state.

    She may definitely have to relocate after doing some research, but relocation costs money too. I'm really feeling the frustration for many new grads. It's just a whole different world nowadays.

    Have you tired talking to your nursing instructors, maybe they can help or even talk to unemployment maybe they can help you find a job that pays better than burger king. What about your classmates, are they having those problems or maybe they can put a good word in with there supervisor. Remember things happen for a reason and things look rough now but it will get better and you will realize that you are touching people's lives and making a difference.

    In the neck of the woods where I live, Burger King starts workers out at the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour while the CNA/tech jobs pay between $10 to $15 per hour.

    Yipe. I'm down in central FL, and every single one of my classmates had multiple job offers immediately after the nclex scores came through (home health, hospice and LTC, no hospitals though). Have you looked into home health? Down here, you don't even have to get "hired" in, just show up with your license and a clean bill of health, and they set up orientation.
    Don't know where you are in central fl but I haven't seen the situation you describe...county to county may be different. Starting pay is generally $14 to $16 per hour..
