  1. Post here about your new grad hiring woes....

    I'm in the bay area, and let me tell you I would start looking out of state pronto. I wised up after 6 months of looking/working for free in a RN residency in the bay area. Not to mention, many other states including the ever so talked about Texas ar...
  2. New grad program at Kaweah Delta, Visalia??

    I was offered one of those positions a month ago but ended up turning it down for another job, but I was impressed with the training offered. It seems they are very supportive of new grads and have many staff members available during the dayshift to ...
  3. For Burned out nurses who are leaving the profession...

    Thank you.
  4. 120 hrs for License

    Is the problem that you cannot find work to complete these hours?
  5. For Burned out nurses who are leaving the profession...

    Being a new nurse, I have not gotten to the point yet of being burned out by nursing. But I definitely see that a large portion of the nurses (more experienced and not) feel the same way as what I am reading here. My question, is there anything I ca...
  6. CRNA profession saturation and new graduate CRNA?

    I don't have the answers for you, but I must say that it is smart for you to be looking into this. I only wish I would have been better prepared for the job shortage for RNs before I graduated this May. I've thought quite a bit about perusing CRNA in...
  7. GN's paid more than experienced staff is this typical!

    This exact thing happened to me at another job before nursing. A coworker left and then returned a year later, and was started at much higher than the rest of us who had even more experience. I was furious and brought it up to the manager and then t...
  8. My first nursing job!!

    Yay! Congrats. I'm not sure if you joined the ranks of the large group of us new grads who have been so desperate to get a job this past 6 months or more and posting on this website about it, but I also just got a job! I have to move many states awa...
  9. Dear preceptor

    That has been m experience twice with horrible, demeaning preceptors. I've even been told by them that is the only reason they do it. I wish there was some sort of feedback that went to their managers at the end of these preceptorships.
  10. WHO is Hiring in California?

    try the fresno/visalia area. I got a job offer at kaweah delta in visalia a month ago that I turned down. (got another job, out of state) The area isn't the best but hey...
  11. RN New Grad- can't find a job!

    No, not at all. I don't see it getting better personally. I did however take a job many states away, but in the bar area it is still very bad and just getting worse as the December class has just graduated. I spoke to several nurse recruiters today ...
  12. cost to train a new grad

    This is very encouraging. Thanks for your input. I agree that it is substantial how much more training a nurse needs after spending so many years in school to be able to function in the role of an RN. However, I would not say that a new graduate nee...
  13. Hospital Falters as Refuge for Illegal Immigrants

    "There are two groups of immigrants. Those that come here because they can make way more then they can at home, and send it all back out of the country to their families back home, until they have enough saved up that they can go back and live happil...
  14. Before nursing school I wish I knew.....?

    I wish I knew that I would graduate, apply for hundreds of jobs, and 6 months later still be unemployed...
  15. I completely relate! I personally have this fear of pushing a med into the wrong port, being as most of the ICU patients have a gazillion IV lines all tangled up everywhere... My preceptor just looks at me as I obsessively attempt to untangle and lab...
