I will say this for what it's worth. If you're an RN it means you spent at least two years in a nursing school, had at least four 6-week clinicals in a variety of settings, met some charge nurses, nurse managers, directors of nursing. It means you have friends who are nurses, alumni of your school who are nurses, instructors who are nurses. It means you are an individual who advocates for nursing and promote the profession. If your attitude is not the worst around, and you applied yourself (not just tagging along) while in nursing school, you will get a job within two months of graduation! It may not be your dream job, but it will be a nice launchpad.
In a class of about 75, the only person I know without an offer as at now is the only person who everyone is afraid of. S/he really isn't bad but definitely not a team player, and has a tough, mean look all the time, and very difficult to work with. When I ran into 'em the other day and heard their story I was moved to give some contacts but I think about how those people will feel when they see this demeanor...I just wished 'em luck and left. Do you know how many in my class feel the same way?
Attitude, laziness and a feeling that you can do some hours for free (even tho' this is the profession with most shortage in the US) are just a few reasons why some don't have a job.
Don't forget, nursing is a profession, like law, medicine, pharmacy, not a just degree like economics, chemistry etc.
