You didn’t go to NP school to continue working as an RN. The market is tough for new graduate NPs right now. A combination of the pandemic and oversaturation of the market has made getting that first job nearly impossible for some. Not all hope is lost, though.
After school, it took me about 6 months to find my first job. Right now, I am seeing new graduates working as RNs for a year or more after graduating from an NP school because they can’t find employment.
This must not be your fate.
Even in a saturated market, you will find work. However, with the appropriate adjustments to your application and interview techniques, you should be able to locate something you want.
