I have been out of school for just about 2 years and still can't get a job in a hospital. It's either I have no experience or I don't have a BSN. I am a mother of 3, who can't afford to complete a BSN. I have an associates, but apparently that isn't good enough. While in nursing school I worked in a hospital as a PCA, when I finished school they told me they wouldn't hire me because I didn't have a BSN. With only 2 jobs posted I guess they had their pick. I am so frustrated, I constantly ask myself why I picked nursing! I'm so sick of hearing that this is the #1 profession to work as. I have yet to see it in NY.
