I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Nursing in May of 2009 and passed the NCLEX RN in July. I have been searching everywhere for a facility in the Las Vegas area that is willing to hire a new graduate and have had no luck at all. I can't even find ONE upcoming new grad program. It is very discouraging.
Has anyone else in the area had this same problem or does anyone have any advice or inside information that I may be missing? Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated :redpinkhe

I hate to say this to you but, you are one of many. All of my "new graduate friends" have either moved out of state (still looking for work) or working just above minimum wage jobs. Several people THEY know went back to jobs they had before they got into nursing! It's really sad to hear an RN graduate working for companies other than medical facilities.
