    It's tough not being able to find a job, especially in a profession where there is such a shortage! It's important not to take it personally! It became depressing when I'd apply for jobs and never hear back. I finally started asking nurse recruiters, "what do I have to do to make myself employable?". They were the ones who said to look into refresher courses or consider taking a job as an aide. I know it's not what you want to hear (it was NOT what I wanted to hear!) Look at it this way: nursing school was probably the hardest thing you ever did.. and you finished, graduated and passed the NCLEX! You've already proven yourself! This might be a little setback, but you'll get a job. Ask every nurse you know for advice... as the nurse recruiters for advice... Good luck!!!
