    Immigration: More Foreign Nurses Needed?

    ghillbert you seriously need to get over yourself. You come across as being better or above the the new grad and I'm sorry to burst your bubble but you are not!! Yes, you have the experience, but that doesn't make you better than anyone. It's funny how the experienced nurses tend to forget what it was like to be a new grad. We, US nurses, simply want to be given the opportunity/chance to prove ourselves before being pushed aside for a foreign nurse.

    Immigration: More Foreign Nurses Needed?

    ghillbert the foreign nurse will have to learn a whole new way of life, the foreign nurse will have to learn the language, the foreign nurse will even have to learn how to get to and from work as well as being oriented to the floor, staff and so on. So in essence, the foreign nurse is on the same scale as a new grad. Again, no offense as you seem to have quite a big chip on your shoulder..

    Immigration: More Foreign Nurses Needed?

    No offense ghillbert, but I am already competing with hundreds of new grads from the US, I don't want to have to compete with the "small number of foreign nurses" too.

    Immigration: More Foreign Nurses Needed?

    I total feel ya Emily. I see page after page of nursing positions daily but no hospital is willing to give a new grad a chance. Come on now. As they put their adds in week after week some new grad could be getting trained. Hello, why is this so hard to understand. I know it takes time and money to train a new grad but bringing in a traveler or someone from registry day after day has to be more expensive. I just don't get it.

    Questions for New Grads..

    I have a few questions for all the new grads out there.. How long did it take you to actually find a job (for those who have one)? What did you do to get in, meaning, did you know someone or did you just fill out application after application? I have applied repeatedly to the same hospitals and keep getting the infamous "thank you but we are looking at other candidates" over and over and over. So do I just keep applying to the same hospitals and just hope that I will one day get an interview? Do you really have to know someone in the nursing field to be able to get in anywhere? Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions would be appreciated as I'm feeling a little down about the whole situation .

    Hey new grads

    Oh, I thought it was going to be like a class, you know like the new grad programs at Phoenix Children's and Mayo. I still applied though, it sounds great.

    New Grad Residency Program

    Yeah I know, I got the news today as well. I just saw something about the RN residency program at Abrazo but I'm not sure if it's only for ASU graduates. I'm going to give them a call tomorrow to see what's up. I can't believe they got that many applicants.
