Some new nurse grads struggle to find jobs
Southern California Public Radio

Five years ago Sandra Villarreal decided to pursue nursing as a second career after more than a decade in health administration. In June she graduated from Cal State LA with her bachelor’s degree in nursing.

Villarreal has applied for at least a dozen nursing jobs but so far she’s had no luck.

“When I go out to open houses or job fairs I do my networking and meet other new grads and I find people that have actually been looking for a job for about a year now and so it’s a little discouraging,” she said.
