Through the generosity and determination of many individuals and corporations, the Paradigm Award program has grown to include the Paradigm Scholarship for Working Women. To enhance and benefit the career aspirations of working women in the Greater Philadelphia area, this merit scholarship is awarded annually to women who wish to complete their undergraduate degrees while working full-time for Chamber member companies.
Hi Jo, it’s so unfortunate that you didn’t get a job, I know it is very disheartening. The new grad offers for 2014 are in the process of being released and my expectation this year is that there will be far more graduates without job offers than in any years prior.
We are told by our teachers and by employers that you do not need a new grad year to start nursing, however my experience trying to find a job without post-grad experience showed me that employers don’t want to go near you with a 10-foot pole if you haven’t had a new grad job. I hope that this year’s graduates continue to apply for non new-grad RN positions and hopefully employers will come to the realisation of the potential in you and that, with just a little bit of support and a little bit of training, you ARE in fact ready for the workplace.
I would also encourage you to speak to your MPs – both state and federal. We cannot go on funding the education of new nurses without ensuring they can gain employment. It is too big a waste of time and money and a terrible emotional strain on a student nurse.
I wish you all the best of luck!

Yes, the exact same thing is happening to me. I have missed out on a graduate program. I feel if I knew this drama and that it was super-competitive I would never have started the degree a few years ago. I have applied privately to public and aged care homes. However, same as above, have been knocked back due to no experience. I have even been thinking of studying something else that I’m interested in like counselling. Hoping that would give me more opportunities for a counselling job if I have a Bachelor of Nursing degree behind me. However this is more money (added to the HECS debt and more time studying etc) which I can’t afford to do with a little 8 month old baby. I’m completely lost!

Hi! I am currently applying for a nursing graduate program in NSW. And I have read all your comments and insights. Should I pursue my dream of being a nurse in Australia? I’m a Filipina and newly registered nurse with no experience. What are my other options?

@ Margie-you must be joking! APRAH told you would have to do another BA Nursing Course and then an MA to work in Mental Health??? Insanity! In NZ they have this comprehensive nurse programme where they do 90% general nursing and merely pay lip service to mental health, then once qualified a grad’ nurse can go straight into mental health nursing. Even after 10 years out of nursing I know of nurses who did the return to nursing course over there, (which is also general nursing biased), then walked into jobs in Mental Health!
I will probably get slammed for saying this but I don’t think that the quality of nursing has benefitted from its obsession with the Ivory Towers of Academia. Having a BA or MA or PH.D does not a good nurse make! Those essential, old fashioned nursing qualities like compassion, empathy, unconditional positive regard, being none judgemental, a sense of humour etc seem to have become obsolete in a nursing world obsessed with status and academic qualifications!
