I feel your pain. I was on here only a few short months ago saying the same thing. I luckily was offered a position in April after 6 months of searching, dozens of online apps, handful of interviews, 2nd interviews, shadows. Apply to everything that interests you no matter the experience level. There were a few people in my orientation hired onto units in positions that required experience and they were new grads. Apply at all hospitals. I really wanted to work somewhere I could take public transport or walk or bike. That didn't happen. I had to get a car with this job BUT I have a job that puts me on the road to gaining experience. There are new nurses at my hospital that commute 30-45+ minutes. It sucks Im sure but is better than being unemployed. I would rather commute than fill out applications all day
Keep your head up. You will get a job, you don't suck as a person or a nurse, just stay patient and positive. Be willing to work "almost" anywhere on any unit on any shift. I took night shift, not my favorite, but its a job and experience under my belt. Remember, nothing is forever. You don't have to stay somewhere forever, once you gain some experience it opens the door to SO MANY opportunities!
