What are the chances of new BSN graduates getting a job?

  1. 0
    How is the job market in the next 1-2 years for NEW BSN graduates from the University of Rochester? What are the chances of getting a good internship or any job for that matter?


    Also, I'm a Canadian citizen, so will that interfere with any job applications, or do they not look at that?

    Thank you for your help!

    It doesn't matter where you go to school right now. New grads are hired, but it's a tough market. I can't see things improving that much within a year. I predict it will be 2-4 years before things start to pick up. You may need to relocate.

    That's what I thought 2 years ago...now I'm not sure even another 10 years will bring our unemployment rate down. There's no political will whatsoever to solve this situation, and there are massive structural issues with the US economy...we might be looking at a permanent 9% unemployment rate, like some European countries.

    In other words, it's almost impossible to say what the chances of getting hired are, today or in 4 years. Your best bet will always be networking. It's all about who you know these days.

    In California you have about a 15-20% chance of being hired. 80% of my class never got hired and are now stale grads.

    Remember that we had our severe recession that could have become a depression. Recovery is definitely slower than any of us would like. The unemployment rate is slowly coming down, and the overall unemployment rate for RN is about 2.5% & healthcare is seeing a growth in jobs.

    In 10years there will be a HUGE nursing shortage, (actually a lot sooner) as nurses age & retire, and our aging population requires more health care.

    And indeed, networking will never go out of style.
