I graduated from a very well known LPN school in my area, passed with flying colors, one of the higest grades in my class, excelled in clinicals. i took my nclex just 6 weeks after graduation in July of LAST YEAR and I still have not been able to find a single job! nothing! nada! zilch! i feel like i've filled out hundreds of applications. been to two interviews. had countless phone interviews and they all tell me the same thing... "the position requires someone with a minimum of one year experience"... I'm luckily attending RN school and hopefully graduating next December, but I still want/need a part time job. I got so desperate for work I went back to work as a veterinary technician part time. I spent all kinds of money, took out loans, stressed my life, got a nursing license and now I have nothing to show for it. It seems like most of the other LPN's in my RN program are employed or have been employed at some point as an LPN. Could it just be me??? It also seems like those who got jobs have a family member in the biz. I don't. How can I get experience if no one is willing to give a new grad a chance! I even tried applying as a PCA or CNA to get my foot in the door and because i dont have THAT particular certificate, i've been turned down:eek: i thought an LPN lisence would trump that. I'm wondering if finding an RN position is going to be this way...?? I'm Begining to second guess my career move. I love nursing, i really do:redpinkhe, and i really want it to work. is it a possibility????
