New Grad in Phoenix

  1. I graduated from another state at the beginning of October and am having a difficult time getting a job! I passed the NCLEX 11 days ago, got my license, etc.

    I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas for where I could apply!

    I've had 3 interviews, one no response (LTAC that was worried about not being able to train me), Banner (said no), then Mayo (who I won't hear from for 2-3 more weeks).

    Skilled nursing seems to be pretty adamant I need at least 1yr RN experience. I've applied for, no joke, 50 positions within the Abrazo network (they list that experience isn't required). HonorHealth NewGrad said I needed more experience???? Is there anywhere else I should apply?

    I'm not above working as a CNA, but I have two young children I need to cover daycare for, so I really don't think that would work at this time.

    Hey! I tried messaging you but it wouldn't let me.
    Thanks for the recommendations, I finally got an interview! I was wondering how your experience has been?

    Awesome! It's been hard. I lack in confidence in my nursing ability and have a lot of anxiety, however everyone where I am working is very nice and helpful. Much more so than my clinical experience. FYI I just got emails that HonorHealth is hiring a bunch of newgrads! Try and apply!

    That's awesome! Are you working at the LTACH that you recommended to me? That's where my interview is tomorrow. I saw all the posting for honorhealth but when I tried to apply, it wouldn't let me because they want an ADN. I did apply to the dignity health new grad cohorts but I haven't heard anything yet.
