Employment question for Broward College students with Broward Health Scholarships

  1. I have an employment question specifically for Broward College Dec 08 and May 09 graduates, who are Broward Health Scholarship recipients: Were you able to find a job in a Broward Health Facility?

    I hear that many new grad RNs are having trouble finding jobs in S. FL. I'm assuming that the scholarship helps. Am I wrong in this assumption?

    Thanks.

    The scholarships do help in obtaining your first job, but from the classmates that I have known, some got jobs very fast, and some waited a little bit-- with the scholarships.
    those who did not have scholarships, got jobs- but in med/surg or another area where they did not want to be. All got jobs- some new grads find it difficult to get a job, because they may be looking in a specific specialty of work, like ER, ICU or whatever-- they end up being too picky.
    I say, apply everywhere, get your experience and then look for something better.

    I wish you the best!!

    did you graduate already??
