    Congrats and Good Luck in your new RN position!! Thank you for posting, because I'm constantly reading about how hard it is to get a job...it's nice to hear some success stories!

    I graduated May 4th, passed the boards last week, and had an interview yesterday! I definitely got the interview from networking, too. Hoping I get a good call soon!
