New grad RN jobs in Michigan

  1. 0
    Hello everyone, I'm a new grad RN and looking for a job in Michigan. I graduated in August and have been trying to find a job but no luck yet! I have applied for so many positions at different hospitals but so far had just two interviews, St john Macomb (in Jan) and henry ford Macomb (Feb). I have been trying to call HR as they told me to follow up within a week or 2 but didn't get any replies yet. I'm losing my hope and don't know what to do. Please Help!

    I highly recommend that you contact the hiring manager directly. At your interview, you should have gotten a business card/someway to contact the manager directly. I would send an email stating something along the lines of "I enjoyed meeting with you on X date. I am confident that I would be a great addition to your team and wanted to send a note expressing my continued interest in the position. Feel free to reach me anytime at (your phone number)."

    Hi new nurse! I am a new RN myself from (mid)michigan, and I cannot find a job either! I just graduated in dec and have only been called for one interview, and I must not have gotten the job because I never got a call. I recently have been in contact with a nurse recruiter from the hospitals and she is going to try to help me get an interview! Maybe you can try to contact a recruiter? I think it's just a bad time right now for us.. good luck!

    Hi! I am also a new grad. I have been working at a local hospital for several years. I have had 3 interviews already, one on the floor I work on as a Tech. I am on medical leave because I got hurt and can't interview while on leave. My classmates that don't already work in a Hospital are also having the same difficulties you are. I know that Schoolcraft College is having a job fair today (prob to late for you to attend). I also know ALL of the Detroit Hospitals are hiring. If you work downtown for a year, you will gain so much experience you will be able to move to a hospital closer to you. I would also suggest contacting recruiters at the different hospitals. Good Luck to you!

    I really appreciate your help! I tried to call the HR 2-3 times at both hospitals but no one calls me back. Now that you have mentioned about emailing them, I would try that too. I'm in the U.S. from 6-7 yrs and did not know much about the networking and all that. I wish I knew that earlier. So I thought I can ask for help here. Thank you so much again

    Hi g2momma. I have been applying to the near by hospitals only but now I will take a look into the Detroit area as well. Thanks for your suggestion. Hope you will get well soon and good luck for the interview.

    Keep going. Consider moving to a new city if you can. Two of my friends are from the D but moved to GR because there are more jobs.

    It seems that LTC is an area many new grads overlook, but LTC facilities almost always want RNs, experienced or not. Certainly, the experience is different from hospitals, but there's still a lot to learn: assessment, med pass for a much larger patient load, and time management! Plus, some LTCs pay more than the hospitals. Good luck!
