    In my state they don't accept new grads for home care, most cancer centers, or jails. It took me 9 months to find a job. Luckily I was employed as an LPN during that time. What if I didn't? Those loans kick in 6 months after graduating. What if I had kids to feed? I think it's good to open people's eyes to the reality of the situation before they invest all that time, money, sweat and tears.

    *** i think only a tiny minority of adults are not well aware of that.

    people listen to everything someone says, eveyone thinks a job is going to be handed to them

    *** well that is what the propaganda has told them. this lying propaganda came from what is usually realiable sourses. it is not unreasonable for a person just entering nursing to think they will be able to find a job easily.

    or nursing is all peaches and cream.i have people that work as nurses now and hate it because they thought they was going to be the top notch money makers w/ a easy job!

    *** they were either willfully ignorant, or deluding themselves. who goes into nursing to make a lot of money? most nurses don't make anything like enough money to go into this field just for the money.

    you have to be honest with me do you no anyone out of a job as a nurse forever its going to happen.

    *** can you please rewrite this? it is impossible for me to understand what you are saying.

    ..i never heard of no more then a year for many but usually 4 to 6 months is the avg.im from jersey and home care agencies hire all day long up here

    *** jersey is a small island in the english channel famous for it's dairy cows with a small population. juts how many home care agencies can there be there?

    I've never heard of New Mexico referred to as Mexico, but I have heard of New Jersey being called Jersey and since there are people from other countries than USA posting on here I thought maybe you didn't know that. Do I have to really explain that?

    *** I have never heard of New Jersey called just Jersey. I admit I have never been there, or for that matter closer than 3 or 4 states away. I don't know anyone from New Jersey, or even from that part of the country. I just thought that, given the quality of writing from a person who puts her bachelors degree education in her name, that maybe English wasn't her first language.
