    Thank You. I was ready to give up at the begining of the year. I thank the Lord for getting me this far. With some hard work from me and a loving family.

    There is nothing better than facing a demon and coming out on the other side of the struggle a better person. Congratulations to you, and good luck with the new job!

    About 2/3 of my classmates (graduated May 2012) have found RN jobs ... and we live in the NYC metro area. So, YES it is possible. You just have to do some creative job searching and networking. Sitting on your ass all day behind a computer sending resumes out to a black hole will not reap quick results.
