I will graduate in May '07 with my bachelors in nursing at the University of Oklahoma. My parents recently moved to CT (near Newtown) and I have been calling around to local hospitals to ask about job availability in ICU... Needless to say it's been a little discouraging. I have been calling hospitals and asking for the nurse recruiters, but several hospitals said they don't even hire recent nursing grads for ICU. Different people have been telling me it's not what you know but who you know. I really want to be able to apply to CRNA school asap, so I know how vital getting a job in ICU is... I am willing to drive at least an hour. Any advice any one might have would be great!
Thanks in advance
