    Are there really so many LVN new grads who just cannot find a job ANYWHERE? Omg, I am getting really scared here. I am going to get my license pretty soon, but it sounds like I'm still going to have a hard time. What about SNIFFs? is it hard to get a job there too?
    I got my license in august and STILL have not found and LVN job. I've been on 2 interviews and they ALL want experience. I've submitted over 100 applications and no luck. I too am bilingual and there is no luck, Im so fed up, it's ridiculous.

    I have been LVN for 30 years, and there are still no jobs. I am going into homecare. But doing my RN through an online program, tired of no work.

    Congratulations! I really need a job. I have been looking for awhile and it's frustrating. I have been working as a caregiver because it is better than not working at all. I have been looking like crazy but without my 1 year experience I have not been given a chance. I hope that I will get one soon too. By any chance are they hiring where you work? I live in the Los Angeles area and bilingual.

    I am also bilingual and unfortunately unable to find a job. Does anyone know if there is any home care agency that hires without experience, thanks a lot.

    I hear you!! I dont have 30 years but I do have 3 and that seems to not be enough....I too am considering going back to school. Perhaps I may have a better edge but at this point who knows at that point the market may be even worse.

    Yay! I just finished school today so I start the job hunt. I believe that persistence beat resistance so it's nice to see that people are getting jobs. It's a little disheartening to see all the posts of people who are looking for jobs and can't find them.
