I emailed this woman:
You should really interview new nursing grads, not people advertising for their schools...
There is NO Nursing Shortage! Only a shortage of experienced nurses willing to work.
When I graduated in 09', over half my class was without jobs. Only three years prior, when entering our BSN program, nursing students were having to decided between multiple job offers before even graduating.
Since the economic downturn in 08' things continue to get worse. New Grad Programs have nearly all been shut down. There are very few "New Grad" positions. Hundreds of thousands of new grad nurses are without jobs, many for over a year. They begin to loose their skills they learned in school, and as the next graduating class appears they have even more competition.
The only new grads getting jobs are the absolute "cream of the crop" and even many of those aren't getting jobs. I have an RN new grad working in my department as a Nurses Aid because she still can not get a job, and her resume is remarkable: graduated with honors, worked a summer in Haiti during nursing school giving nursing care, extra nursing courses, and the list goes on.
I encourage you to looks deeper on this and not rely in sources that are making money off of false advertising.
