Thanks for the reply
Im already license RN in Nv...i got few calls but im considered a New Grad so another problem. Can you give me names of facility that accepts new grads?
I'm not in NV and not sure if it's the same in NV in applying into NG programs.
In most hospitals, they will usually consider your application as long as you graduated from college within one year and have zero to less than 1 year of actual RN experience. So if you're applying to hospitals with the one year acceptance deadline, don't be surprised as to why your application did not go further.
Sometimes, when the HR person or manager (hospitals) see the lag in time, have little to no experience, they tend to prefer a "more fresh" nurse. It doesn't matter if one passed the NCLEX within that one year period, as it's still graduation date based. I think partly also due to hundred's of applicants going after just a few jobs, it makes the HR hiring easier to quickly eliminate the "older" grads.
That's why I mentioned try going into the home health, nursing homes, LTC or SNF places, they are usually not as strict, but it is considered sub-acute, so it's not always the preferred experience to get into an acute settings. of most hospitals. Good luck!
