    I, too, am in Job limbo... thank goodness I still have my RN job! I finished classes late July, actual graduation date was August 27. Took boards on Oct 16 and my license came through in 8 days. I've been looking since July and have had 3 in person interviews and 2 phone interviews. I just got called today for a second interview/job shadow day in 2 weeks as well as an in person interview following a phone interview (will be 2 interviews for 2 different services since it is a 4 hour drive). That is scheduled for the day after the job shadow. I feel like it is taking forever. I've also received a number of replies to job postings via email stating that another candidate was hired or my qualifications aren't what they are looking for. But more often than not, I just don't hear anything as the original poster noted.

    I do speak "SOME" Spanish but I am not fluent but that didnt stop me from getting a job as RN/BSN faculty at a predominately Cuban-American run school. Its just South Florida period that's saturated so if I gotta teach, I guess it is what it is. I will be making $80,000 to start off and that's more than what my fellow classmates where offered who interviewed at Primary care offices.

    P.S. English speaking was mandatory on the application site because state boards are in English. People don't have the time to train new grads, I think that's the issue. I work in Little Havana so I get the Rosetta Stone for free by conversing with my patients.

    I just took a contract in SD in a heart hospital. Still haven't heard from the jobs I applied for, I recon I won't either. I take a fatalistic view of this. This is where God must want me.

    I am too in the job limbo. Everyone wants experience NPs. How can I become experience if I can't find get a NP job. This late summer I did take a np job and realize it was too much for me bc I did not get the support I needed as a new np. I was scared and felt like I was stupid... I had to learn on my own about billing and coding...medical diagnoses that I had not seen.. and learning my responsibilities as NP. So I left the position bc the doctor was not helping teach me or support me. Now I am back on the job search. This situation shot down my confidence level and see the reality of what new NPs deal with after graduation. Anyone been in my shoes? Will I find a good job? a doctor that will train, teach, and support me.

    Hi
    I am 3 years from graduation, but I feel for you. I can get jobs because I have experience but yes no one wants to train you! I have been amazed at jobs that wanted to hire me for serious internal medicine jobs and the "training" would have been following the previous NP for 2 weeks, then completely on my own except oh yea you can call the Doctor if you have a question. Of course you will have tons of q uestions as you are trying to learn! How did this happen to Nps? I guess because their is such a need, but we still need a chance to learn in practice like doctors got for 3 years of residency.
    This is scary because I know many of my classmates are in the same position trying to do the best they can on their own with our basic knowledge from school and our own research. NPs need a standard program of 1 year residency after graduation.
    Ok enough bitchin, that wont help you.
    Can you find a loan repayment job with the HRSA? They usually are open to new grads . You have to move somewhere but its about 3 years , not 2, FYI the 2 years starts in october no matter when you start the job, but it pays $60,000 no tax to your loans on top of salary.
    Good luck

    Thanks morganvibes. I have checked HRSA, not much openings. I hope 2013 brings more NP jobs. Sadly, I have been rejected due to lack of experience. Thank god that I went back as an RN just to make ends meet. Its disappointing no one wants to train, hire a new grad.
