I totally feel your pain! I am in the same boat. I have applied for countless jobs and have managed to get 1 interview. I took a job at a local hospital straight out of nursing school in the cardiac telemetry unit as an admissions and discharge nurse. It turned out to be a very bad decision on the director's behalf since the job required you to be able to bounce back and forth between admissions, discharges and patient care. I didn't get the proper orientation for patient care and didn't do it often enough to become comfortable with a full patient load. I had a horrible charge nurse who would not come out from behind the desk to help me. My director called me a liar when I went to her about it. She wouldn't release me to transfer within the hospital, so after several incidents and some very scary situations for a brand new nurse, I gave my notice and quit. She was so mad that she marked me ineligible for rehire...which I eventually got overturned after about a year and a half. But that has been a huge black mark against me. In short, I have had incredible luck for finding the worst possible jobs out there...I have had 4 jobs in 2 years, with the past year being spent in home health working for the armpit of all agencies. I have applied for darn-near every job posted in the past 10 months at the 2 local hospitals to no avail. Many positions withing an hour radius and I have even started applying for positions in a 3 hour radius with no luck! It's not like my work history prior to graduating from nursing school 2 yrs ago was questionable. I was at my last job for 7 years! I've just managed to find the worst of the worst everywhere I've landed. No one will take a chance on me because I don't have hospital experience. It's so frustrating! I am now considering either traveling or going back to school to get an NP degree. I'm already 32K in debt for my bachelor's..I hate to get further in debt with no guarantees that my luck won't follow me! I have even contemplated getting out of nursing all together. I thought once you got your nursing degree that you'd be set. Boy was I wrong!
