There is a nursing shortage, but things are tight right now. That means fewer people retiring or moving jobs, fewer new jobs being created, and employers asking employees to do more with less. That means when staff resign or go out on maternity leave, that position might not get filled.

Nursing isn't unique, it's happening to a lot of professions right now. There are no guarantees in life, least of all that a degree guarantees a job upon graduating.

Agreed, while the job market is tough for nursing it's tough for almost any profession right now. I can't think of any profession that it's easy to find a job in right now. I know plenty of new grads with other degrees and they're not having any easier of a time finding a job.

I think what sucks though is so many nursing students were told by everyone (professors included) that finding a job would be so easy and that hospitals would be fighting over them, and it's a culture shock when that's not the case and the students aren't prepared to have to look for a job on their own, which isn't their fault, I blame a lot of these for profit schools saying how easy it will be to find a job.

Sometimes there is a delay in the news the general public gets.

Information can be out of date.

It is kind of like the Auntie you see once a year at the family reunion asking how your boyfriend is, but you broke up with the BF 10 months ago.
