Hey just want to give everyone hope that these programs can be finished. I have a story just like many of you that started over 5 years ago. I also had a hard time finding work and was just about to throw in the towel after being turned down 11 times. Two week prior to me having to quit I was given a position at my current job. Daily I have a reminder of where I could of been as I work in a county jail. Please all of you who are staring this journy or feel lost, don't give up. I cleaned hotel rooms until I could work again. Someone out there will give you a chance.
Congratulations! I am just starting my journey and am a little scared so thanks for giving me hope!
You did the entirety of the program (5 years) or did you apply for early termination and got off early?
Congrats I can't wait till I'm done with this.
Congrats on completing your program
Congrats on this no less than HUGE achievement! I too had to clean hotel rooms and was verbally treated very badly by the manager there due to this label I have. I also took the postal exam, passed that, and worked for them for a moment. Good luck to you!
For everyone else who is reading this I want to tell you what I did.
My senior year: On January 2nd, before the semester started, I was looking up every hospital in my area and going to every "open new grad interviews" opportunities. The ONLY position I swore I would not apply for was nursing homes - not because of the patients, but because of how staff treats one another and how management treats its staff (and i have seen it in many different nursing homes). I put in applications for the 4 major hospitals where I live and also 10 applications in for other positions (such as skilled nursing or LTACs). That is how I landed my first job where I am now (med-surg). The only caveat as a new grad going to a med-surg floor before graduation is you are only guaranteed the position if you pass the NCLEX the first time - which I did (not in 75 questions though).
Sometimes your career office at your school will have "open new grad interviews" opportunities.
Hello All, I applied for the Nursing program at SPC, I am super nervous they will let me know on July 01
has anyone else applied?
I am starting a peer program soon and I hope and pray I find someone that will hire me. I'm glad you made it great job
