feeling depressed with my life.. i have a wonderful husband and loving family. but i need to help my hubby with the finances cause we're not doing good at that part lately. no ead yet. im a newly registered nurse but jobs for new nurses in los angeles area dont hire new nurses. this is terrible. i havent started applying for jobs yet coz im not sure if that's okay, yet seeing this awful situation of nurses in CA takes away that little hope i have with me. i need a job to help myself gain confidence and as we;ll as to earn money. I dont know what to do.

There are other jobs available in LA. You'll just have to adjust and don't be picky.

Good luck. :thumbs:

You might try looking for a job as a CNA and work your way up through the company for experience. Then, when a position for RN opens up, you would probably qualify for the transfer. I know a lot of new nurses have to work their way up for that experience and it pays off for them in the end.

Just a thought!

Good luck to you :thumbs:

As an inexperienced nurse, you might want to look beyond the major medical employers/hospitals such as Kaiser Permanente, UCLA Medical and Cedars-Sanai for your first job and try to get some experience by starting with skilled nursing care facilities, subacute or nursing homes. However, continue to monitor the posted jobs by the major hospitals on a daily basis. I've seen RN listings for Good Samaritan Hospital (Good Sam) requiring as little as 6 months experience, but know the competition for those is fierce.

Are you familiar with/or registered with sites such as nurse.com and allnurses.com? Click the allnurses.com link to read about the experience of a new RN grad and note the tips she recommends when seeking an RN position, also you can network with other nurses on that site and network with nurse groups in the LA area on fb.

Keep your head up and best wishes.

Scarlet,

Just a suggestion, I work for Los Angeles County have you applied for a county job? They seem to need nurses all the time.

Why dont you try to find some level entry work for now like receptionist or clerk, it wont be long term but at least its something and soon you can be able to apply for nurse jobs..
