I am starting this thread particularly for those of us who have graduated more than one year without finding employment. Just to support each other and hopefully get positive information to assist in getting employed.
I graduated nursing school in June of 2011 with an ASN degree. It has been very difficult finding a job and this is not due to lack of trying, I have applied to hospitals as well as LTC with no job offers. Hence, I decided to improve my education and my chances of landing a job. I am currently enrolled in a RN-BSN program with hopes that the job market will get better. Please offer any advice that I can use to get my foot in the door anywhere, so I can get the needed experience and finally have the ability to proclaim myself a working nurse instead of New Grad without experience. I am eager and very passionate about nursing, with hopes of starting my nursing career sooner than later. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
