I recently received my degree in Nursing and graduated with Honors. I also successfully passed my NCLEX exam in Missouri. I am getting very disappointed/aggravated not being able to get a job. I have been applying to BJC for months and can't even get a call back. I called Barnes HR department and they told me that it takes awhile for the recruiters to go through all the applicants....but I have been applying there since March. I have also contacted SLU and SSM which tell me in order to be hired new nurses must go through their "versant residency program" for SLU, or the "future's program" for SSM....but both are full for the fall; they told me to check back in the spring. Student loans will be coming in soon, so unfortunately I cannot wait that long. Any advice for this frustrated nurse??
