I am giving up on nursing. I was in EMS for 8 years and became a nurse and now I can't find a job. I could only afford an Associates and hoped that my EMS experience would help. Guess not. I finished a BSN and now I am never going to be able to pay back these loans. I was turned down for the ED Fellowship at NS/LIJ and that was just a kick in the face. I have been here a year and can't find a job. I have been passed over for people with no experience. I have been told I interview great and I am liked, but no job. I am really crushed over this and I am done. Please don't tell me to apply here or there because at last count, I have sent out over 500 resumes. There is only so much rejection a person can take. I have tried hospitals, LTC, sub-acute, acute, psych, clinics, etc and nothing. I did have one job but because I wouldn't falsify records, I left. I left another state to come here for family support, so I can't move. I have no idea on where to go but I am finished with nursing.
