As a new graduate, most programs prefer letters of recommendation from clinical instructors. The problem is, I've attempted to contact (via e-mail) the ones I knew best several times with no reply!
I've only been able to get one strong reference letter from an instructor that supervised me over 3 semesters. My other letters are from a previous non-nursing supervisor and a theory professor.
I know I was a solid student during rotations. I'm not as outspoken as others, but my evaluations were great and I worked hard. So, I'm upset that this is deterring me from my job search.
Has this happened to anyone else? What else can you do once you've attempted to contact them several times? (Not all instructors have office hours where I can show face)
