Another choice is skilled nursing or LTC facilities. Homecare that was mentioned also.The VA. Specifically look for search engines that have "new grad" or some other new nurse phrase, just to get a sense of who is hiring new grads in areas you would like to look Indeed dot com comes to mind, and although people send literally dozens of resumes from online with little results, I would use the information to go to directly to the hospital's website. Also, a smaller community hospital would be much more likely to take on a new grad than some of the larger hospitals. Another choice is some MD offices. Schools
. Flu Clinics. Pharmacys as a pharmacy tech--there are many of them who also have "minute clinics" --or a local urgent care center. If you have tried all of these options, make an appointment with HR in a hospital of your choice. And ask, what do you need to do to be taken on full time? Is it feasible to do PRN? If you are not working (and especially if student loans are looming) get back into school.--get your BSN, your masters, your NP. It is also feasible in some states to be able to get an Emergency Medical Technician certificate once you are an RN by just doing the practical exam. This could open up some ER tech positions. Also some ambulance companies. You could do RN to paramedic and go that route. It is depressing that new grads are having such a hard time. But you are far from alone, not that it makes it any easier, but it may take some thinking outside of the box.
