Specializes in Adult Gerontology Primary Care NP. Has 6 years experience.

Hello everyone, I am an Adult-Gero Primary care NP. I graduated in December 2018 and moved to Ohio in July 2019. I have been having so much trouble looking for an NP job here in Ohio. I got offered a job, it was terrible, I left within 3 months. I started applying for RN positions to get my foot in the door and still no hope even with 4 years of experience as a nurse! Its been so hectic and disappointing. I have been rejected so many times, applied to over 50 jobs, nothing. I am starting to lose hope, does anyone else live in Ohio and is having trouble finding a job! Please help!!😢

Are you able to move to another area/location for a NP position? I would submit applications outside of the Ohio area.

I wish, but I cannot due to personal circumstances.

Sorry to hear that! 😞 Maybe looking into remote work? like telehealth may be an option if you can't move out of state or move to another area in Ohio.

I also have that specialty and had trouble finding employment so I added family (FNP) and emergency (ENP) and although recruiters saw me an a CNS I was at lease able to select from far more opportunities than the  AGPCNP avails.

This is exactly what I have been predicting for years.  If everyone goes back to school to get a NP there will be less demand for employment.  Wages will also go down significantly.

My son is a RN in the emergency room.  He is 25 and already seeing this.  States that he has zero desire to spend $80k for a NP degree to make MAYBE ten dollars more an hour.  Nope, no thanks.

I am on the other side of the coin.  Looking to retire from this madness in a few.  Many of my docs I work with are sick of this as well.  Tired of administration owning everyone.

A MSN costs 80K? I think I got ripped off! Don't want to tell you what my doctoral degree is costing me in student loans 🙂
