I am so stressed out and regretting my ARNP degree. It's been one year since I graduated and passed the board, national certification. And I still can't get a job anywhere!! It's maddening. Everyone wants experience but I can't get it without a job. I have been doing HRA assessments but those are drying up and I'm not getting any work from them either. I don't know what to do! I even tried to volunteer at a free clinic just to get experience and they actually turned me down too. Because they said I don't have enough experience. IT'S MADDENING! Does anyone know of part time work? Or any other HRA companies hiring? Anything? I can't leave this area to relocate (custody divorce agreement) so relocation is not an option.

Certain areas of the country are saturated with NPs. Ever consider expanding your search to more rural areas? Maybe contacting an agency and taking something not in your preferred area? I went a few months and started questioning my choices, but a year...best of luck! I hope you find something soon.

Unfortunately I've done all of this. I'm signed up with a few agencies and also am driving 1-2 hour commutes already as it is. Have applied for everything in those areas too!

Tampa, unfortunately, is a saturated area. Have you tried Tampa Family Health Centers? They always need NPs and it has loan repayment

So sorry to hear that, a year. Have you thought about outside of Tampa? I am from Tampa to and will be starting my FNP program in Oct of this year, but plan on going outside of TAMPA for work when all is done.

It's not meant to be helpful as much as it is an acknowledgment of the conundrum. I'm glad you identified the collegiatlity. I was afraid my tones would step on toes.
