I am a new grad. Graduated in September and took my boards in early early October. I'm from SC and nurses are a dime a dozen... there is no demand for them here, especially in my area. They want nurses with more than a year and I have even seen two-five years of experience. Hospitals are having a blast picking who they want and its not new grads. I'm sure they put my resume and app right to the side when they get see it, because I'm a new grad. I have applied to 40 jobs, so far, and not one interview. I would definitely move somewhere that really needed nurses, if those places still existed somewhere. Problem is, I'm a single mom of a 5yo son. I'm considering going back to bakeries to do cake decorating while I look for a RN job, just to have some cash flow. Those student loans will want that money soon. Its a sad case, and I loved clinicals and practicum. I'm just going to have to keep trying to get in somewhere.
