    It's not just happening in NY, I am experiencing the same thing in Houston, Tx. I am really trying to find my way at this point.

    hang in there. Are you keeping your availability open? I was very fortunate to get a job within 2 weeks of passing my nclex. I think the only reason I did was because I called a place and changed my availability to 11-7 and they hired me that day! You will find something but be persistant do alot of calling and checking on your app and marketing yourself to the buildings. They will overlook an application if another person is calling with interest.

    Thank you for responding! I have my availability listed as open. I know beggars can't be choosers; so I am willing to accept whatever is offered. I need/ want a job. In the last two days I have applied to over a 100 jobs. I just never thought it would be this HARD.

    What have you been doing to find a job so far? Are you using whatever career services that your college offers to grads? What about signing up at some of the nursing agencies? Have you looked outside your immediate area? Commuting is no fun but sometimes you gotta.

    I graduated last August, passed my NCLEX in October, landed an on-call job in January....but they never need me because they hired three on-call LPN's at the same I'm a bum lol...the job market is really sucking.
