  3. Bachelors Degree requirement for Mickey D's!!!!!!
    Not really, these days being a new grad nurse (especially an old stale grad like me :cry:), we probably are at the same employment level as someone who has a degree in philosophy or history or...

  4. Unemployed & inexperienced New RNs. Vent it out!
    I'm in the same boat here, though you could hardly call me "new." I've been looking since 2009 so if anyone thinks their situation is bad, there's always someone out there who has it worse. A tale...

  5. I don't want night shifts
    I wouldn't mind working night shifts; in fact, I'd prefer it once I was done with training. I guess it's because I've always been a night person. A night shift differential would be the extra icing...

  6. My take on how the nursing profession is going...
    During this rough economic time, I'm told time and time again that nursing is cyclical, that in time, things will open up again and nursing will once again be as in demand as it was ten years ago....

  7. How long did you stay at your 1st job?
    I'll let you know when I finally get one. After waiting so many years for one though, I assume I'd stay at that first job as long as possible.

  11. Rotten deal or should I be happy I got it at all. New Grad position with strings.
    In this tough economy just be happy you got an RN job. I'd work for free for 6 months if I got to work as an RN and have it count towards the almighty experience that every place wants so desperately.

    For Da_Milk_of_Amnesia, that's great that you were able to land a job out of nursing school in '09, unfortunately, not all of us has the same luck. And in case you didn't know, it has been very hard...
