I live in San Diego, CA and have been working at a convalescence hospital for a year and 8 months. I started as a charge nurse and was promoted to Restorative Nurse Coordinator after 6 months, where I handle admissions, etc. My educational background is a BS in Family Studies and a minor in pre-nursing, and an associates in nursing.
I think I'm ready at this point to move on to an acute care role, and have been applying to med surg, ED, and L&D. The San Diego market is awful and have had trouble making the transition.
I have family in both Phoenix and Tucson and am considering relocating to either if it means getting a job in one of these areas. Based on my profile, do I have a shot? Should I apply to new grad roles?
Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
