    I noticed there are a lot of people talking about BrightStaff and saying that they were all told that Brightstaff is still looking for more people in their area. Are they just saying that and leading people on???

    Do you think BrightStaff is another loser company that is taking advantage of nurses (new grads) like some other major flu shot clinic that is on Allnurses???

    these don't say any experience is required... they are level 1 nursing jobs or IP jobs... not a "new grad program" but a level 1 nursing job/or IP job which I believe means they may consider hiring new nurses without experience... if you have an active RN license or IP license. worth a shot to apply...

My cousin who graduated May 2008 just landed a job in LV this September...so if he can land one....there's faith for the rest of us even tho it took him like 1.5 years!??!?!? We just need to definitely keep our heads up!!!! Although i didn't read all the threads....everyone has been really informative....so keep postin and if i find or hear anything i'll do the same! Good luck!!!!

    No problem. It took me a couple months and a 5 hour move from home to find my first job, it's crazy... and I like looking to see what's out there so this is a perfect place to share what I find ) I just hope it heps someone to get their first RN job. After my first year of nursing experience, I moved back home and it was much easier to land an RN job with that year of experience under my belt; had 2 job interviews and 2 offers. So don't despair all, just get that first year of experience wherever you can get in! Good Luck to you all and I'll keep my eyes posted. Here are the last couple of things I found:
