In May 2013, I graduated from Macomb Community College, and I took my NCLEX in the beginning of June. I passed my NCLEX, and I am licensed now in The State of Michigan. I am starting Oakland University in August for my RN-to-BSN completion, which I should graduate at the end of 2014. It's the first week of July, and I've had only one interview, but I didn't get the position. I have seriously applied for jobs starting my starting last semester of Nursing School, which was in March. I was not one of those who have previous experience by being a nursing assistant, and I think that's the reason for having no luck. I have done everything you can think of by networking with nurse managers that I know, writing thank you cards to each HR person that I speak with, and basically hand delivering my resume to them, but no interviews yet
Most of the positions that I see available say minimum of 1 year experience required for the position. If you are a new grad, and have no experience as an RN, how are you supposed to get any positions if they require experience? So overwhelmed!!!!!! I hope that you were able to finally find a job, so there is hope for the rest of us out there looking!
