    Thank you all. Each day is a day closer to the right job... that's how I have to look at it for now. I applied to several more jobs today. Like some of you are saying, I also thought that 3 interviews was a great sign and that it meant it would only be a matter of time before I was offered the job. I tried to call HR for feedback/constructive criticism, but no response. It's time for me to just move on...

    @the smack Good luck to you, hang in there... I completely understand, trust me. I heard that the job market for new nurses in FL isn't that great, same for NY (where I'm from). I'm gonna keep applying and I'll try volunteering at hospitals, if anything it'll help me meet the right people... Check nurse.com every now and then for job fairs too -- http://www.nurse.com/events/career-fairs.

    @lisy321 Good luck, hang in there... try taking a nurse refresher course so that you can remain competitive in today's market. If a year passes and I still don't have a job, that's what I'm gonna do.

    Hey guys,

    Well I just found out that I didn't get a job that I had 3 interviews for. I can't help but to just sit here and cry because I really thought that I got it! This is beyond disappointing... If I would've known it was gonna be this hard to get a job in nursing, I may have reconsidered my major 4 years ago. I still have to pay off $30,000+ in loans like pretty much all the rest of us new grads. I'm not even a new, new grad. I'm an old, May 2012 "new" grad. This definitely took a stab to my self esteem, I'm not gonna lie.

    Tomorrow I'm interviewing for a part time Tele position at the hospital I work at now as a CNA. A friend of mine, another CNA, interviewed already for that job last week, whose dad works as a nursing supervisor there. I feel like she'll get it, but you never know. I'll be happy for her, but I'll be a lot happier if I get it. I just feel so discouraged.
    Is it possible for you to move to another state or city to find employment?

    Keep plugging away. It's great you are getting interviews! Before you know it, you will be offered a position. It's very competitive out there.

    Hang in there. There are some jobs in Bay County, Florida. Two hospitals. Try applying online. It's not close to Miami but might be worth it.

    Omigosh, I've had several interviews recently and thought I had each job!! The recruiters seem so positive and the head RNs seem interested, but I think the peer interviews can make you or break you. I didn't get ANY of the positions and I have 30 years of experience. It's hard to find a job in nursing! I never thought I would see the day when that would happen!

    If you're having a hard time finding a permanent position, maybe you could offer to do an internship or even volunteer as a means of getting hospital experience.

    And try not to focus too much on your student loans! You have the rest of your life to pay them off. In some cases, you can take up to 30 years to pay them back.

    Don't give up on yourself!! There IS a job in nursing out there for you. It just hasn't found you yet!

    The key thing here is to never give up, there will be disappoints but then it will be all worth it when you land at a job that is meant for you. By all means, cry and vent, then after that pull yourself together and continue applying. That is how life works and quitting and giving up is not an option you should take.

    I feel you! Don't be discouraged or upset. Think of the interviews as a learning experience! I had 3 interviews within the same facility for a dialysis center, and all my friends were like "you got this, 3 interviews, you definitely got the job." Lol, so I was pretty confident. I didn't get the job because I tried to negotiate my salary. I was actually peer pressured into it! It's all good.

    Keep looking and don't give up! A job will come to you.

    Hey I know how u feel. I graduated last June and it seemed like I was finding nothing, even my dad who is an RN got me a couple interviews with the company he works for but I had no takers. What I had to do was I went and got a less than ideal job. I got hired at a home healthcare company. Depending on the company you may not get much experience but it gives you something to put on your rsum. And it turns out that even a tiny bit of experience goes a long way. What you gotta do is never give up. And keep reapplying cuz it shows them that u really want it. I hoped that helped
