I can tell you that some places have very limited openings for new graduate RN's. Last I heard was that Hoag does have new graduate opportunities, however, they are VERY limited. We're talking like 10 spots, and it's not uncommon for approximately 1000 new graduates to apply. You would want to contact the HR department, or attempt to surf the hospitals website to see if they provide information on their new graduate programs there. here is hoag's link:
Career Opportunities: Nursing: New Graduate Program
Things that I would start preparing now are:
Your resume - include ANY relevant health care experience
Letters of recommendation -seems like most of them want at least one, if not two, clinical instructors as well as a previous employment letter.
Any awards you have obtained, high GPA, etc
ACLS? (if you have time for it, do it)
The things that put you in an odd spot post-graduation is that many of the new graduate programs now want to see your RN license before they promise you a spot. Not saying you can't compete, but there enough grads now who have been out of school a few months and already have it, and it does give them an advantage. No harm in trying though.
Good luck to you
