    Well written, well said. The thing to take away from this is that you will appreciate your job more then others when you work your tail off for it.

    Newgrad503 thank you for posting this. You have persistence and Faith. It is hard for new grads so I've read. I'm not even accepted into a program yet but I've read about how hard it is to get a job. There is hope out there and you are the example of that. Keep on keeping on girl! Thanks for your encouragement and inspiration!!

    Yes it seems that way.New nurses have to have connections in order to get into the hospital...which is very devastating news to us new grads.

    Thanks for the encouragement, God knows I can use it! I'm a new grad as well and it's been a LONG 6 months of frustration applying for RN jobs. I've applied to over 30 positions in various different hospitals and units in NY, with only 2 interviews and still nothing.... I hope things begin to look up like they did with you.
