Same here! I totally understand what you feel! I even think there might be a group of new nurses that are unemployed somewhere...ugh.
There are jobs, but those are the crappy ones. Bad companies, bad schedule...etc.
If you are trying to get to a hospital, try talking to people. All the nurses I ask about their hospital experience told me they got their jobs through friends. It's sad and upsetting, but true.
It's amazing to think that there is really nurse shortage, but yet, hospitals are not thinking long-term and only hiring experienced nurses because of the costs of training new ones. Plus, since economy is bad, old nurses aren't retiring yet. I heard it is even cheaper for hospitals to get foreign nurses than to train the ones already here.
I'm sure you were exploding and just wanting to release all the anger... but don't let it get you. Things aren't easy at the beginning. I'm in the same boat and sometimes I think I want to go back to school and do something else. But at the end of the day I realize I do want to be a nurse and I have to fight to get what I want.
What kind of job have you been doing? unemployed for 20 months? wherever you are, ask around. Even carry your resume, you never know.
Chin up! things are always better than you think
