ADN STILL no ACUTE CARE JOBS!? rant!!!

Posted

Here I am 9 months past graduation. I am in a bachelors program that will currently take me over 2 years to complete. So lets see the only job I got offered was in LTC. I lasted 5 months. NOT a safe environment and I really don't feel like losing my license in the FIRST YEAR OF NURSING. So here I am. Jobless... using my other career to fall back on. Time to rip up the diploma???:mad: I have applied hundreds of times along with my fellow graduates. Unless you know the CEO of hospitals ya just cant land a job as an associate degree nurse. Yes thats right the ONLY associate nurses I have known that have gotten jobs in hospitals know someone HIIIIIGH UP THERE. :eek: Illegal? NOT SURE but it has gotten me pretty angry. I guess I should have stayed at the LTC facility where everything they do there is against ALL the morals and ethics we should have as nurses. I am so broken and disgusted by my first 9 months in this field. ABOUT TO GIVE UP.
