Hi guys, it's tough out there. I have an LVN certificate and I'm struggling to get job. I have almost 6 years of experience in the field of home health nursing. But everywhere I go they want someone with hospital experience. I'm looking to volunteer to hopefully help me finally land a job. Any words of encouragement will be appreciated. It's been a year since I started looking for a job. (Laid off) :/ I'm trying not to feel down but it's so hard. I feel so inadequate right now.

Yes, a nursing home could be your answer. It's not a great job- I've known people to do this for a living... but it's better than nothing. And could be a stepping stone to something better.

The nursing home industry is also in expansion mode, and may new ones are coming in to serve the aging population.
