I know, I saw that discussion too! This is the link where I saw all the job postings. http://www.indeed.com/q-New-Grad-RN-jobs.html
Honestly, this whole thing makes me really angry. I feel lucky because the classes I've taken over the last 2 years I've been in school are generic core requirements, so I have other options. It's just a letdown because I was looking forward to being a nurse. But I feel really bad for the people that have gone through the program, put their life on hold and amassed a huge amount of debt, all thinking that there was a light at the end of the tunnel.
According to Nclex, in 2009 134,708 new applicants passed the boards. They're predicting >500,000 new jobs by 2020. But it doesn't say specifically that the jobs will go unfilled, just that their will be that many more new positions. With at least 134,000 people graduating per year, the numbers speak for themselves that there will be too many nurses! I know people leave the profession frequently, but I don't think reasonably that many people will leave so that there could be a shortage again.
