Forums - Politics Discussion - Well, so much for people thinking they should train as nurses...

Meet the job market.  You get everyone presuming that a certain area is hot and the buzz people should go into it.  So, people are told there is a MASSIVE nursing shortage and that there is a need for nurses, so go and be a nurse.  Well...

It's a problem well documented by the nursing industry. About 43% of newly licensed RNs still do not have jobs within 18 months after graduation, according to asurvey conducted by the American Society of Registered Nurses.

do not have jobs within 18 months after graduation, according to a survey conducted by the American Society of Registered Nurses.

"The process has become more and more discouraging, especially since hospitals want RNs with experience, yet nobody is willing to give us this experience," saidRonak Soliemannjad, 26, who has been searching for a nursing job since she graduated in June.

 

Apparently the new economy today may have a large demand for nurses, but over 40% of those graduating as nurses can't get hired.  Go figure...

Read the entire article, Richard.

It states that they aren't finding employment because the hospitals are demanding tons of work experience, rather than hire new nurses. That'd make it seem like hospitals are being very self-defeating in that there is a nurse shortage, but they don't want to take on new nurses.. Maybe its because they can't vet so many newbies. Who knows.

I have a digital sales data blog for those interested: Digital Game Insights

id venture it's because evry college and startup now offers nursing degrees, and not enough nurses are being trained properly. This is the same with many industries.

This is a problem endemic to the entire hiring market. Everyone complains that they can't find good help. No-one is willing to *make* good help.

Even if i weren't someone whose life was directly effected by this mentality, you would figure something's gotta give somewhere.

Foot in the door is the hardest step in any career. This certainly isn't exclusive to nursing...
