Ello~ I'm just curious to know, for those of you who are unemployed nurses, exactly how long have you been looking for work? What are you (LPN,RN,BSN-RN,MSN-NP,etc.) How many previous years of... Read More

    You just have to get 1-2 years experience and then you will be able to get something better. That is ridiculous about the insurance, but totally believe able. I worked in a rural facility and things "didn't work out" when I turned in a doctor note stating I couldn't work overtime as I was 5 months pregnant on night shift. This Wyoming facility will hire new grads from various other states including CA that are just looking for a place to get acute experience.
    There were 4 new grads when I started. In a matter of two months half of them found better jobs and left. I wish I could be so lucky. They're literally pinching every penny over here. That's why I was finally able to get "full-time" status with half assed benefits. And that's total BS about your situation. They can't discriminate against you because you're pregnant. Needless to say, I've been applying since about a month ago.

    What they are doing is extremely unethical.
    If I were you I would have gotten an attorney involved

    If they expect you to lie about insurance to save money,how do you know they are honest and safe when treating their patients? It's a huge issue.

    You are absolutely right. When the State came in it was nuts. I was supposed to be off my "orientation" (which isn't even adequate new grad training, more like a crash course..) they put me back on it so that the State wouldn't even talk to me because I was a "new grad". They shave off time off of our hours thinking we won't notice it. But I do and I say something and they fix it. It's ridiculous. Thank God I got my own malpractice insurance, because I've never been at a hospital where they throw their nurses under the bus as much as they do. I just have to keep reminding myself that my first job is NOT my career.

    Searching for 7 months. Discouraged to say the least, I have found pool home health jobs but they pay nothing. I want a hospital job and am applying as a traveler. Sad when hospitals sell out to save money but that is the way it is now.

    How can you apply travel jobs if you don't have experience?

    The only people from my cohort who don't have a job six months after graduation are those who only want to work in hospitals, specific specialties, or can't relocate.

    I can search because I have been an Rn for 15 years and have 14 + years of experience, I was working until I was laid off and have been working pool as stated above. I am frustrated because no one around me is hiring yet they will take travelers, I think it may be my age.
