Hi everyone, I was just wondering what the hiring situation was at your hospital? I'm a new grad and I was supposed to start my Nurse Resident program next week but just got a call saying I would probably not be able to start until at least mid July due to low census. I live in a major city on the East Coast so I was a bit surprised to hear that and just wanted to see if this is going on at other hospitals across the country.

That is unfortunately how it is for a lot of hospitals and nurses. Even for nurses that are experienced.

Yes, it is going on everywhere. Low census due to the need to cancel elective surgeries plus people avoiding the hospital in general right now unless deathly ill has lead to lots of empty floors in the hospitals and lots of nurses losing hours, hospitals hemorrhaging money and hiring freezes more common than not. Some are even facing layoffs.  It's a rough time to be a new grad or a nurse looking for work.
