I found it very hard to find and secure a nursing job as a new grad and still do. There is alot of mis information out there about job opportunities for new nurses. People are taking out these huge loans and sticking it out through clinicals competing in these dog eat dog type situations, just to find out the real shortage is with experienced nurses and no one wants to hire new grads because who wants to pay two Rn's for the work of one? And on top of that no company wants to grow a new nurse no one will pull you to the side and educate a new nurse on real world nursing culture, how protective you have to be and how it is really like highschool, what is nurse retention and job satisfaction, or security? Does it only exsist in books? What nurse remembers who gave them their golden opportunity to practice and that "She" did not know it all? How many remember the journey they traveled to become the competent professionals they are now? Just keep looking hopefully there is a job out there just for you and I hope you find your thing in nursing since there are so many different avenues for us out there. I wish you nothing but the best goodluck medic6070.
