    Im due to qualify in September, and the lack of prospects really worries me. Im beginning to see every other student as competition for the minimal amount of jobs, and all our local trusts are only advertising internally.

    Surely its better to employ a new nurse than pay money on sick pay for burnt out nurses. Surely its better to employ a nurse to ease the workload and make sure care is delivered, than a failed discharge and more money treating patients who should have already gone home.

    Im seriously worried, I want to work, I want to try my hardest for my patients but there is just no opportunities. Even trying to find a job away from Nursing is hard, so its rock and a hard place at the moment.
