I just moved to CA about a month ago and I have been calling hospitals and filling out applications constantly. Everyday I get an email or two, politely rejecting me. Getting a job as a new grad is proving to be no small feat for alot of people who graduated in 2011, 2010, and 2009! (This nursing shortage is a scam.) I'm wondering if I should pursue a Med Surg certification to give myself a leg up. Thoughts?? Discuss.
