Hi I'm new to allnurses.com. I have a question, I know it's been answered before years back but I wanted to ask now for an updated answer and advice.
I graduate (God wiling) with my BSN at the end of December. I'm very interested in moving to Houston (I'm from South Texas). I was just wondering if there's any hospitals that hire new grads and/or internships. I'm going to apply to Memorial Hermann and others but I understand it's a very "who you know" process.
Also I was wondering how the new grad permit works in Texas, is it paperwork I have to do, or does my school do it?
Thanks for your advice,

I just graduated from an LVN program last month, took my nclex today.
Here's the problem with Houston. We have TONS of nursing programs
. Jobs are difficult to find unless you are coming in w/ a BSN ...and even they are having a difficult time w/o experience. I would suggest you put out some feelers to the bigger hospitals. You will have better luck if your willing to work in the MedCenter. I live in the suburbs so for me it's not worth the traffic, drive time and parking fees to work down there when I would be making the same if not better money out here...IF i can locate a job with no experience. Good luck to you!
