RN DeAnn McEwen on the Jobs for New Nurse Grads | National Nurses United Sponsored Segment | Show 450
Coming up on the Show this week…Graduation! You’ve made it to the finish line—now what’s next? The song “Pomp and Circumstance” by English Composer Sir Edward Elgar plays on as graduates march on that glorious day. You’ve worked hard, spent lots of money to get a good education and now it’s time to put that education to work.
All of those things are true but not so fast! Unfortunately there are some realities that are facing college graduates today. To begin with graduates are burdened with an average of $80,000 in student loans and many are finding it very difficult to find work in their chosen profession upon graduating. Unfortunately that is no different in nursing and it appears that some of that may be by design. RN and healthcare activist DeAnn McEwen joins us.
