i have graduated and received my license in 2009. i am currently working on my bsn. i was only able to get 3 contract jobs. i cannot believe that after all my hard work...and student loans i cannot get a nursing job. i have applied to every hospital/hospice/ltc/clinic in my area (NYC)...to get nothing. everyone is hiring but not hiring if you dont know someone, have at least one year experience or bsn. this is really horrible. i am starting to feel like this was a huge waste of my time and money+interest. what is going on and what else can i do.
deniselanier, I am an experienced nurse who were fired from works and placed on unemployment benefits since 2010. So, I am quite familiar with the kind of despair that you are going through; maybe worse, especially the fact that I have been through job terminations.....although without cause. Have you ever considered doing flu shot? You will usually meet the kindest folks with great sense of humor. This year the flu shot season will start in August and will probably be over in Mid November.
I know it is discouraging, but you are not alone.
The job market stinks that is for sure. I graduated 2009 as well with 21 years of Medic experience behined me and with friends in the ER but it took me going back for my BSN for the oppertunities to start to "trickle" in. I still have not been offered my "dream" job in the ER but it will happen. These highs and lows come in cycles and even though this one may last a while do what you can to get that experience. It may be sub-acute care, home care, urgent care or a medical office. Once your BSN is under your belt you may start seeing more light. But just so you know you are not alone, many of us are experiencing the same frustration. It was not a waiste of time and someday it will pay off. Keep searching the web and use those recruiting services and monster job websites, it may bring you an offer. Good luck

I was married for 10 years without a child. i could not have a baby. I was so scared that i will never have a child of my own, i was living in sadness. I feel bad whenever i look at other women and their kids playing at the park. some time ago, i saw the advert and testimonies of the guru maharaji prophet. I sent him an e-mail and i told him my problems, and i asked him if he could help me restore my fertility and help me do a spell to make me have a baby. he agreed and accepted to help me. so i sent the payment for the spell and i waited for instructions. then he finished casting the spells and he told me to make love to my husband, so i did that. and a few weeks later, i went to the hospital for a test and i was PREGNANT, tears of Joy came from my eyes and rolled down my cheeks. this is a great Miracle and i will never forget the guru maharaji prophet for making me have a baby and making my dreams come true.i am saying this to the world so you all can give him a try also,he also does Love spells, Get your Ex back spells, Money spells, Lottery spells, command spells, beauty spells, court-case winning spells, career spells, healing spells and so many more.his private email is firstname.lastname@example.org
