Nursing Grads Struggle To Find Jobs, Despite Projected Shortages

  1. 0
    Nursing is the largest healthcare occupation, adding more than a quarter million jobs last year alone, according to government figures. So why couldn’t Candice Dyer find a nursing job?

    Dyer, a June 2011 graduate of Chamberlain College of Nursing in Chicago, and several of her classmates spent upwards of five months searching for their first jobs.

    “I graduated back in June and took my boards back in August,” Dyer said. “From then until October, I filled out over a hundred online applications.”

    Dyer, 30, continued working as a massage therapist while filing dozens of applications each week.
