For nursing jobs, new grads need not apply
[link to money.cnn.com]

"Since the recession, health care has been the single biggest sector for job growth, but that doesn't mean it's easy to get hired.
Registered nurses fresh out of school are coming across thousands of job postings with an impossible requirement: "no new grads."
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 a survey conducted by the American Society of Registered Nurses...."

I'd have to dissagree with that article. I live in a town with a nursing college and this chicks are getting jobs left and right. Hospitals offering moving incentives and all that.

Re: For nursing jobs, new grads need not apply
This has been true since about 2008. Before that, most new nurses had jobs lined up before graduation. Now new grad jobs in hospitals are pretty difficult to get.

By 2010, most jobs wanted a year of experience. Now they want two years.

Long term care jobs are much easier to find, but few want to go into that specifically, so new grads who aren't under a ton of financial pressure don't tend to go that direction.
