Hi. I am a new grad who has recently passed my NCLEX. I have been applying to a ton of jobs but they all have been denied. the community I live in hires new grads quickly. so far everyone I graduated with got a job offer within 2 weeks of passing their NCLEX. I contacted one of the hospitals to inquire and was told I was coming up as ineligible for rehire and they told me what I had to do to reverse it. I was told that theyll come up with a decision in a week. It's been 3 weeks and I havent heard anything. I contacted them a week ago to check on the status but I was told that theyll call me back. they havent yet. has anyone been in the same situation and can give me advice on what to do. I feel like this blemish on my background report is whats keeping me from getting a job interview.

There’s no universal “do not hire” list. It’s by facility or system. Many areas of the country are not hiring right now and are even laying off nurses. And if you are in an area that is a hot spot, they might not have the ability to orient new grads. So, do what you can to clear your name, and keep trying. You may need to consider a non-acute care setting.

If I may ask, how did you land on your facility's do-not-rehire list? I'd have an easier time recommending a course of action if I knew what you were up against.

Our covid cases have been going up daily. I know a couple of students who are graduating in may 2020 from the same college I did and have gotten a job. They'll be starting in June. I have considered nursing homes, home healthcare, clinics, dialysis. Everything I can think of but travel nursing.

I had a family emergency and had to stop working for a while. I asked for 2 weeks off but because I was a new hire they refused to give me time off. I had no choice but to stop working. I was only scheduled for 3 days those 2 weeks.

Ouch. I think that's kind of harsh, but there's not a lot you can do but move on from them. So sorry.
