    Not sure which one, but I know of new grads (brand new) who just recently got hired. Also, Centura has a whole "new grad" program set up which includes weekly classroom time additionally to your preceptorship and later mentorship.

    I have not tested the waters myself, but two nurses from my floor just got jobs in Denver fairly quickly and moved there last week. I work on a med/surg/tele floor and both of the nurses were experienced -- one has 2-3 years, the other 1+.

    Denver RN needs job help. My fiance and I moved here. I just graduated
    from an ADN program in Minnesota. I need to work to at least cover some debts which
    means about $1,000.00 per month. Maybe someone out in all-nurses land knows of a little niche I could fill at his or her workplace?
    I would prefer hospital work.
    Any ideas as to where I can find a nursing job? Advice? Support Groups? I have over 5 years as a CNA and 2 years at Medication Administration. Nyteshade--I cannot PM yet, but would welcome any information
    you could offer.

    Thanks All!

    Moving to Colorado was the absolute worst mistake ever, along with pursuing a career in nursing!! I truly feel compassionate about nursing and as if there's no other career I would rather do, but no one will give me a chance to even step into nursing. It is completely sad and disgusting the way the nursing field is and no one even bothered to tell me during nursing school. I have never tried so hard and filled out so many applications in my life and still 6 months after getting my license...No where. I can't even find a full time position as a caregiver!!! I would have known this, then I would never have gone to nursing school to begin with. Seriously pathetic, those nurse who graduated even 5-10 years ago didn't face this hard of a time finding a job. I wish that they told me in nursing school what a hopeless chance of a career this is! If this issue continues the way it is now, we will have a real nursing shortage!!

    This has been my experience in California. I'm searching every state on allnurses.com to get a feel for someplace to relocate that will hire a new grad BSN with no experience. My student loan payments begin in February.
