Well I know this has been talked about before but I am just looking for any advice on where to find a new grad RN job in the Phoenix area (East Valley preferred). I have been applying for over 6 months to hundreds of jobs. I am wondering if anyone has advice or any specific places you would recommend applying to that may hire new grads. I appreciate any help because I am getting so frustrated! Also, not being from the area I am hoping maybe someone can have some advice on specific places I might have missed.

Hi Sarah - I feel your pain! All I want for Christmas is an RN job too! I'm so discouraged getting nothing but reject e-mails in my inbox because they want experienced nurses.
There are such few "new grad" positions in the area and hundreds of applicants - many of which are "fellows" or has experience doing clinicals in those hospital. Many positions gets filled by in-house applicants. I also feel like I have a disadvantage since I went to school out of state even though I have a BSN and two years hospital experience as a Nurse Tech.
The only positions I've found lately which are new grad positions are Banner Health and Abrazo Health but I'm sure you have already found those. Feel free to PM me if you want to compare application notes. Keep applying and keep the faith. Sooner or later you'll get a job.
