Having a hard time finding a job. I have 1.5 years left of probation. My discipline is publicly posted for all employers to read which is horrific for employers to read. I've been sober now for 3yrs with monthly monitoring from IPHP with negative u/a for the past 3 yrs. I work a really healthy recovery program and continued counseling. I am told by my aftercare that I will eventually find a job but I'm starting to feel very hopeless. I continue to interview. I do not have any restrictions. Yet no employer is interested in me. Any encouraging words word be nice...

Sorry you are going through this. I am as well, right now. I keep reading that everyone is desperate for nurses, but I can tell you that I have submitted at least 100 resumes and applications -- I have had one interview, and that is it.

It is discouraging, but we have to hang in there. I know something will come along.

I know so many nurses who have landed jobs, and that is encouraging to me! We will get there!

Same here! We will get through it! That's what I keep telling myself. I thought it would be the perfect time to get a job with covid-19 mess but I was mistaken. I'm holding out hope that the right employer will come along for me and I hope that for you as well. Hang in there!

If anyone is in a pinch for money I see caregiver jobs on care.com all the time. It could hold you over until you got something else...
