There are nursing positions out there for new grads. It took me 2 years to find a full-time nursing position. Think far outside the box and talk to people. Hospitals, LTCs, clinics and doctor's offices are not all that is out there for nurses. I found a position in an Adult Day Health Center - Medical Model. I never heard of any such thing in my life. Had no idea that a new grad could be considered for case management. They were asking for "3-5 years experience in med/surg, or ambulatory care, case management experience preferred." I had no experience, no money and no confidence left. I tried out anyway. I got it. The director later told me that she met with me first to see if I would "fit". Believe me, you will meet that person willing to give you a chance and train you. Keep your chin up. Some ideas, try lesser known hospitals, school nursing, working with the differently abled, drug rehab centers or diagnostic/imaging centers. Per-diem nurses and travel nurses are also good resources because they work or have worked in many different environments and may be able to give u a lead that you never knew existed. Good luck.
