This is something I really don't understand....you do your part and go to school for a proper education to work as a RN with a BSN. Then when you apply for a job they ask you do you have any RN experience ( even if you tell them you have LPN, PCA, etc..), they still say no you need RN experience. How is it you as a new grad RN can gain experience when they mostly want experience RN? Therefore, how can you ever gain experience then? Everyone gain their RN experience at some point because somebody gave them a chance to build their skill.

When I was in nursing school I knew someone that finish nursing school a year and half and couldn't land a job. The person had to end up working a the gas station ( no disrespect) because the person had to work pay the bills some how. I never understood this, i even ask did you volunteer, get BSN and the person told me they did all of that. The person just keep telling me me it is really hard to land a job because everyone was mostly asking for experience RN. Finally, they did landed a job 2 years later which I am happy for the person, because someone gave them a chance.
It is frustrating, and I am not giving up the fight to land a job as a RN. All I am saying is give us new grad RN a chance too.
P.S. This is not a post to cause an argument btw experience RN and New grad RN. Remember we are all same thing regardless Regiestered Nurses. Thanks.
