I was very upset that state boards lagged on my license, I waited 3 more months than classmates. I received my license on Jan 6th and started applying for work asap; I applied online and in person. Two weeks later I got an e-mail reply from I medical facility I applied to via monster.com. The RN manager had me call her and we set up an interview. The interview went well and she was happy I was a new grad, no bad habits to deal with. Three days Later I get a call from her offering me the job! The pay starts at $20.06/hr; much better than the $12.75 I'm getting paid.

Meeting up the their HR department to finalize some paperwork and then putting in my two week notice tomorrow. I guess all the waiting and frustration of not getting my license on time was worth the wait. I still cannot believe how quick I got a nursing offer.

Congratulations on your good fortune!
Thanks; My path to reach this point in life defiantly needed some positive luck. It has not been a fun or easy path at all.

Be thankful you get a job right away being a new grad! I still have difficulty looking for a job here in Bay area. No one is hiring without a single experience at all...I feel really bad. I don't when will I get a job..I dont know when will that happen? I am thinking of moving to San Diego...its sucks being here in CA..:-(

Sorry to hear that, but yes I'm very thankful. I've been reading the LVN section about how new grads can't find work so that had me worried.

If you do move to SD area my classmate found work at a home health agency that is very new grad friendly. Let me know and I can find out more info.
