    We have a hiring freeze at our hospital in rural Arkansas. The local Community College will graduate approximately 50 LPN's the end of July and most do NOT have a job waiting for them. Most hospitals in AR are either instituting a hiring freeze, laying off, and/or taking salary/benefits cuts. I have 2 sister-in-laws who recently left travel nursing because they both couldn't find positions in the same area. They're back in Memphis, and only 1 has been able to secure a job. I left teaching because of school consolidations and lay-offs 3 years in a row. I was told nursing was a secure job. The last 2 months I've been sent home early and told not to come in on several scheduled days. SCARY! All the press about shortages in teaching and nursing is misconstrued! I agree that the skeleton-staffing is unsafe for patients and nurses!! It is wearing us out!!!

    I'm a soon to be new grad too and most hoptials here in West Michigan are under a hiring freeze. Unless you already have a foot in the door in terms of being an aid while going to school a job at a hospital is hard to come by. The dean over the program sent a message to all the healthcare students saying look outside of hospitals for work because in a few years many nurses will retire. Many that currently are retirement age are staying on due to a spouse loosing a job.

    I am not so sure that the medical/nursing has not been affected by the economy. I was laid off 3 months ago. I am an LPN with 30 years experience in ophthalmology, med-surg, and pre and post op assessments with IV skills. Most of my background has been in ophthalmolgist office . I was told "I don't have enough experience to work in a nursing home, and hospitals are wanting only RN's or Nurses aides. Help, I am caught in the middle of RN/Nurses aide. I want so bad to go back to school to bridge my LPN to Rn degree but I can't until I find employment....What does one do?

    As an experienced nurse of 15 years, and from travelling around the country, I can say that there still is a nursing shortage. But because of the economy, the hospitals are going with skeleton staff-which makes it unsafe for the nurse and the patient. Not a good thing. As hospitals are figuring out that this is not working, slowly more jobs are opening up, even for travellers, as I have researched.

    Sorry to say, don;t look to Michigan either. I am also a new grad, with no site of a job around. Half my class does not have a job wither. Hiring freezes everywhere. I thought about moving out of state for a few months to get training, but I have a family so that is a difficult decision, and besides it sounds like this nursing problem is every where. I think it's a joke when the governments think there is a nursing shortage, wonder where their heads are at...

    LOL, I'm a new grad in Missouri and there are NO jobs for us. I have seen some for RNs with experience, but it looks like I am going to be eating Ramen and egg samiches for a while. Not sure what I'm supposed to do now.

    I am a recruiter for a nurse agency in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We work with 60 hopsitals in North Texas and I have been getting numerous requests from them for short term staffing and also perm placement. It has been a little slow going there for a while, but I really have seen the requests for nurses pick up in North Texas in the past 30 days. Just in the last week, I received 13 new full time permanent placement requests for staff nurses and management.

    I too found this article curious. With a depressed economy no elective procedures are done. Someone believed the adage that nurses can always find a job. I have been looking for 3 months.

    Who write's these articles? A web page for nurses where the information is not evidence based? Click on the link for Penn and what do you get? Nothing. If you go to their website there is a list of potential jobs but how long have these same jobs been posted and isn't the hospital system on a job freeze? In fact most hospitals (at least in the northeastern corridor) including Penn Health are on a job freeze. Please sir or madam check your facts and verify your data before you write an article.
