I hear you. I'm in Texas in a busy city and there is nurse saturation. Those working as a LVN is experience so that's good for that poster. I was a new grad in May 2010 and I was beginning to think, what have I done wrong, us there a curse word in my resume, do I have a criminal " case" against me I'm not aware of. I don't know many folks and even scoring on the 98 percentille- no job. I did flu shot clinics and health and wellness. I began to volunteer for a hospice company and I got a position doing private duty nursing. I love this because I was placed in a foster home that had several medically fragile children which meant several nurses and thus I was never alone. Kind of like a mini pedi med surg. Started in Nov and love it! I applied to a geri-psych hospital 2 weeks ago and started last Monday. Not what I imagined but I like it. I always said I like my patients in diapers.
Sorry, I digress, is there any community free clinics- actually I know there are in the DC area, I used to teach in Baltimore. Also, you qualify for substitute school nurse. Good luck and try to stay encouraged!!!
