    No nursing shortage or nursing jobs

    Sure, do you mean online schools, or schools in general? It is really sad, though since I truly want to be a nurse, just thinking of how ridiculous it would be if I put all this time and effort and nothing to show for it. But practically speaking it is definitely a concern.

    No nursing shortage or nursing jobs

    Yes, I am really considering it. At the start of our clinicals there was a "buzz" in the classroom, and on my clinical sites I started to ask some of the RN's on the floor what have they been experiencing. Several of them told me the hospital where we were in had a hiring freeze, and another RN asked me what the school was telling us about job perspectives etc. Also my neighbor's friend graduated last May 2010 and just found a job in January. There seems to be just too many stories I am hearing to just call it a rumor.

    No nursing shortage or nursing jobs

    This topic is so disheartening. I am currently in an ADN program in Delaware just finished my first two semester in rotations. It seems that some of our graduates are getting positions but most are not. Those that have either already worked in the hospital and know someone are getting the nurse externships. When we the students ask what is the job prospects, the instructors are always assuring us that we will get a job. But on every nursing board out here the word seems so different. I am confused and wonder should I just pull out and change my degree plan. After all the books, time and effort may be better spent elsewhere.
