    I would like to know where nurses make that much

    I had the same problem in Columbus 3 years ago. I looked and looked for a year before moving in Dayton. There are not nearly as many jobs now as there were then but it might be worth a try. Good luck!

    Hello! I am a nurse at MVH in Dayton. I moved here from Columbus 3 years ago because I could not find a new grad job there. I can tell you that right now the hospital is hiring new grads as interns. It's a great program. Most units prefer or require new grads to come through the internship program. MVH is building a new hospital and looking to increase staff for when that opens. I think you will not have a problem getting in but I can't promise anything in this awful economy. Honestly, I do not know anything about the other hospitals in the area. Good luck to you!

    I hate to say it but Yes. You can expect to see that. When I first started my new job I was bullied relentlessly by a group of nurses. The new job was tough enough for me but I left almost everyday crying because of the way I was treated. My ANM was/is very standoffish and never once acted to stop it. For the most part, I guess I would say that most nurses are helpful to each other but others will stop at nothing to make you as miserable as they are!

    I work on a telemetry floor that frequently recieves post cath patients. In the past few weeks we have had a few where the doc used an antegrade approach? Are you guys familiar with this? Has anyone seen it before? I felt it is much more difficult to assess the site. Do you have any tips? Also, this is the first time I have ever heard of the practice of auscultating for a bruit. I don't believe that is common practice on our unit.

    Thanks for your help! I realize that Canada is a huge place. I have wanted to move there for a long time and more recently my boyfriend is also interested in moving. I do not know much about the different regions. I would probably try traveling first but I need more experience as I only have about 4 months in a hospital right now.

    Thanks Jan.. that sounds about the same as here.. I know my question is vague. I probably wouldn't be able to relocate for a while. Do you know if there are any recruitment programs where they might help with relocation costs and housing? I know my current hospital does this for Phillipino nurses.

    I am just wondering how the working conditions in Canada compare to the US? I have seriously been considering moving there for some time. I am mainly interested in giving my daughter a better life which I don't think will be possible down here in the US.. I have a BSN and currently I work nights on a medical overflow/cardiac floor. Our patient load is 1-5 or 7. Most of our patients are COPD, GI bleeds, PTCA, pre open hearts.. we get a pretty good mix. Most nights are difficult to manage but I am fortunate to work with a good group of people! Is there also a shortage?:redpinkhe

    I would like to thank everyone who took the time to reply to my post. I have had so many days where I feel like I can not go on any more and your encouragement really helped. I recieved so much advice that I would never have thought of in my current state of mind! Also, I do not have a criminal background and I have good credit (so far). However, I am a single mom which I realize might turn some employers off. I believe the only reason I can not find a job is the way I present myself in interviews and my lack of experience. I am going to work on putting my portfolio together and interviewing. I never even knew beta blockers could help with all those pesky symptoms of anxiety, so I will definitly look into that! Also, I have definitly considered relocating.. maybe Columbus just isn't the place for me! I am going to go part time at my current job in November so that I can devote more time to my job search. Well, I better get going for now! Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks for replying everyone... I have not set any restrictions on what type of job I want. At first I was looking for NICU but lately I have applied for any med-surg job. I really don't care what hours, I prefer day but I'll take night.. I always mark days, nights, weekends.. I still get nothing back! I have not even had an interview in months. I already looked into the local community college and they don't have any interviewing classes...I know that this is where I need help. I also have trouble answering situational questions since I have virtually no experience.

    Hi everyone.. I graduated with my BSN alittle over a year ago. I live in Columbus, Ohio. I have been searching for a job for well over a year now and have been unsuccessful in obtaining a job. I have had a few interviews without any offers. I know that my interviewing skills are not the best. I am very soft spoken and interviewers have pointed this out to me as a reason for not hiring me. I have no problem speaking up for my patients and I know that I am a good nurse if someone would just give me an oppurtunity. I was forced to take a job at an MRDD facility but the job continues to wear on me. It is beginning to affect all aspects of my life. There is no room for growth and it really is a dead end to me. I have grown upset watching all the news coverage of the so called nursing shortage. Where are the jobs? And why are they for experienced RNs only? Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can get my career back on track? I had hoped to become a CCRN but now realize that goal may not be feasible. Are there any interview seminars that could help me develop the necessary skills? Thank you for your time!
