    The reality is that new grads ARE having a more difficult time being hired at the present time. Like every other industry, jobs in Health Care have been impacted by the current economy. Nurses are not leaving their positions - retiring, moving, changing professions etc, as much as they used to because of economic uncertainties. So there are fewer job openings overall. That being said, as the economy slowly improves, and as more nurses retire because they need to retire, there will be more jobs. SO for those who have found jobs, Congratulations! And for those who are still looking, keep the faith, keep a good attitude, keep your license intact, and keep up with what's going on in your area. Try to get your foot in the door by volunteering, or applying for a different job. Be creative and stay positive.

    I can speak from very recent experience that finding employment as a new grad is, indeed, tough. For me, getting interviews wasn't the hard part. The hard part was beating out the other 5-7 people also interviewing for the position. My sincere well wishes to all the new grads still looking.

    Just got hired on in a Rehab center in MO. Will be making $26/hr for day shift.
