    I am in the same boat too. I have been looking for a nursing position since April of this year and now we are in October and still nothing. I have filled out so many application from the Florida Panhandle to the Florida Keys and the only thing I end up getting always is "not hired" or "not selected" or "sorry, we have pursued other applicants" I have my Bachelors in health Science, and my associates in nursing and many years of working at a private medical office but to the hospitals it doesn't mean a thing. I even tried nursing home, medical/physician's offices, dialysis centers, jail/correctional facility but they all prefer 1-2 years experiences of acute care. Well, to get that acute care experience I need to work in the hospital. And how can I get in the hospital if I keep getting the rejection email. I even willing to try to work as a tech in the hospital, but of course I get the denial response for that too. I just wish I knew how I can beat the system and work my way into getting my foot in the door, even if its just for an interview. If someone out there have any other suggestion or know of a hospital hiring, please feel free to let me know.

    I'm an LPN but I really should do a bridge program to get my RN. I am in such a rut right now. Want to try office but I have no office experience. If facilities would just train people and not demand so much darn experience, none of us would be in this boat. What can we do to change that? Anything? I do NOT want to work in a nursing home and am so sick of home care. 13 yrs. at the VA 10 yrs ago does not help me NOW.

    I know this thread is old but I figured I would give it a try. I am graduating with my BSN this August (yay) and I am looking in the Tampa area, specifically at St Joseph's Childrens. I've tried calling HR but they only have an automated voice message and I haven't been able to speak to anyone. I've emailed them twice and still nothing. If anyone has any information on how to apply as a new graduate nurse, please let me know! I tried searching "clinical nurse resident" and "new graduate nurse internship" but haven't had any luck
