You must be persistent. Some hospitals are hiring new grads. I just started a new position at a Magnet hospital in NY and there is about 20 NEW GRADS in my orientation class ! Have you had someone review you resume? If not, I highly suggest it....It could be something on there that is not grabbing the attention of managers or recruiters. When I re-wrote my resume... I got TONS of calls. Are you sending e-mails to nurse managers....if so, do your e-mails sound desperate? Do your e-mails to them reflect the values of the company? No one wants a desperate nurse. Have you considered volunteering at hospitals that actually hires new grads? I spoke with one girl in my orientation class and that is exactly how she got in....she volunteered for a couple of months and then made her move.
