    No jobs for New nurses in the New York City area.

    nursing school is a fraud.

    all new nurses in the nyc area should contact the nysna and their congress rep. And state attorny general--- it is fraud!

    they keep advertising a need for nurses and the schools take your money---

    why are two year schools allowed to operate if no one will accpept an asn degree once you are licensed?

    We all take the same nclex test----

    There are reports of the lack of jobs for new nurses all over the county now.
    That sucks, I wanted to move to NYC when I got done with my LPN (in two years). I hope you find something soon.

    I'm looking for RN job in southern Ca. I will reside in Santa Ana but will not mind driving for long distance as long as they are hiring. I have 1 yr experience in LTC, dementia and rehab experience. Wonder if you can give me some info, it would be awesome. Thanks

    In my medium sized Colorado town, if you have less than five years experience, your chance at being hired by a hospital is small, but not hopeless.

    There are opportunities for new grad RNs and LPNs in sub-acute and LTC. I recommend checking craigslist in your area. I hate monster. All monster showed in my area were agencies, and I'm still getting tons of spam two years after I pulled my resume down.

    No...not all all. I live in Northern IN and it seems all med professions are on an all time low. New grads are having an especially rough time.
