Hello all!I graduated from an ADN program in Aug (well Nov b/c I had to retake HESI), took my Boards in Dec and passed and have yet to land a job. I don't know what else to do I have applied from Houston on up to the Conroe area. When I call the Nurse Recruiters office they all say that they don't hire New Graduates unless they come in through the internship. I don't understand this when you go online and there are at least 100 nurse positions open for the hospital and they only accept 10-20 GN's into the internship. Why are they saying it's a nurse shortage when they won't even hire nurses who want to work. So why do I have to go through an internship now when so many before me did not and they are very good nurses. We have at least 8 nursing schools in my area form ADN to BSN and they only let 20 GN's for an internship. I am just frustrated b/c I worked hard to get through nursing school and all I ever wanted to do was to become an RN and now I can't even find a job when it's jobs out there. If anyone knows of any places who are hiring new grads now in the Houston area or close by please let me know. Thanks for listening!
