Kiley: You are seriously the first person that agrees with me about this situation. All the hospitals in 100 mile radius from my house are hiring nurses but in their websites it clearly states under the requirements ONE YEAR OF EXPERIENCE or NEW GRADS NOT CONSIDERED. But when I tell someone else about it they look at me like im delusional and tell me "as a nurse you are basically guarenteed a job because of the nursing shortage."
My friend is a new grad nurse and she hasn't found a job. She graduated 8 months ago and she says that for the 80 spots in the new grad programs there are about 1000 applicants. I'm just hoping that 4 years from now the market will be okay again.
