Do you know that I have been looking for a job for 2.5 years. I have 8+ years of experience. Employers are saying they need recent experience. My education and experience have not abandoned me. Then I'll read captions like we have a shortage of nurses, who writes these articles anyway? where are they getting their information? I even thought of going to complete the masters in nursing, then I ask myself, will I be able to get a job then? Maybe I should care careers at this time.
