I am beyond frustrated. i can't get a job as a new grad RN. I have applied EVERYWHERE including LTC, homehealth agencies. I also applied where i use to work as a CNA, the recruiter called me to schedule an interview yesterday, she then called me today to tell me that she didn't know that i was a new grad and that they are not hiring new grads right now (so why did she call me and get me all excited about the interview) she could have read through my resume first. I am so angry and i am trying not to be depressed about this, i feel like nursing school was a waste of my money, i have started paying for the loans that i took out for school and still, i have no job. i graduated w honors from nursing school, i was so excited about starting my career. PLEASE PEOPLE DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE ABOUT SHORTAGE OF NURSES. There's no such thing. i think it's just a way for nursing schools to make money.
