So I'm a new grad--passes boards 2 months ago..and ever since I have been applying, calling, and begging every hospital in the city for a job! We have 22 nursing schools, just in the Columbus. This is as simple as supply and demand. For years all you heard about was the "nursing shortage", so everyone went to school to become a nurse.Now we have soooo many nurses(here at least) that many of them are jobless. I heard someone say they just went down to HR and asked to talk with someone...well I tried that twice and gave up after not making it past the front desk. #1 Where is there a nursing shortage in the US?#2 Advice please???
