But at least you have a better chance during the interview, and I am sure you can nail the interview once you have one.
Speaking as both a former new grad and someone who has seen the next generations of new grads join our facility...don't be so sure. There's a wide mix of people who got hired, and a wide mix of people who didn't. And there were both fluent English speakers as well as those speaking with accents in each group.
I think your accent will be a major issue only if it's hard to understand you when speaking English, or if your grammar
skills are very poor.
I do agree with Colleen: the market is very tight for all nurses regardless of who/what/where and how you speak. Most new grads are taking 6-12 months or more to land any job. So in all honesty, it may be THAT and not your accent that is not landing you interviews. Or it may be that you're up against stronger applicants: those with a higher GPA, more experience, more flexibility when it comes to hours or specialty, networking connections and/or are simply in the right place at the right time.
Just keep trying, that's all you can do. Best of luck.
