New Grad Jobs? Tx? Anywhere?

  1. 0 Hi everyone,

    Desperate New Grad here looking for a job anywhere in the country! Do you know anywhere that's hiring new grads? I graduated Dec, 2010 and I am hoping to do a new internship in few months before applying for jobs. I wanted to know what's out there.

    Scott & White (Temple, TX) has new grad internships in the winter (January) and summer (June-July) in several areas. They're well-known in central Texas and are a big teaching hospital/level 1 trauma center.

    The job market for new grads in Austin, Houston & Dallas/Fort Worth seem to be pretty tight at the moment.

    You mean you graduated in Dec. 2011, not 2010?

    Depending on what states (i.e., CA) you're looking at, you're considered a "new grad" up to the 12th month after your graduation date and applications are restricted to those dates that they will look at. Some also have zero RN experience to be accepted, some up to 6 mo or less, some less than 1 year.

    CA for example also has a 43-48% unemployment rate for new grads, cited in the CA BON 2011 nursing survey.

    I'm not aware of any determination by the CA BON about the specific time limits you're considered a "new grad" in. Where did you see that information? I believe it's up to each facility to determine that.

    If she does another internship, regardless of a regulatory time limit, the clock would probably be reset, anyway.

    Scott and White in Temple does usually have positions open and will hire new grads with a BSN. Metroplex in Killeen will hire new ADN grads if you work as a nurse tech. I've heard Scott and White is a really good hospital to work for.

    The market in Texas is very tight and competitive everywhere except for the rural areas and along the Mexico border. Yes, new grads get hired but the application rate for internships and hospitals in major and moderate sized cities vary from 300-600 applications per opening.

    If you are willing to live in a less exciting place while you get experience, there are jobs more easily procured in areas that are less desirable to live in due to remoteness and poverty. Some of those areas have hospitals still offering sign-on bonuses.

    The CHRISTUS Spohn system in Corpus Christi is continuing to hire new grads. They have very well developed training programs, including a Med Surg 'training' unit that they staff with only new grads & preceptors. I'd give them a shout - especially if the idea of beach living is attractive to you.

    I never said anything about the CA BON, as it has nothing to do with the CA BON at all.

    What is considered to be a "new grad" for those looking for a job in the CA market (and just using CA as an example here) and pertaining primarily to only job applications. So yes, it's up to each facility as you said.

    Most of the CA hospitals are very specific in their application process watching the date you graduated from nursing school and that frame time is one year AND some are very specific if you worked one day as an RN and some are more lenient. Some say NO prior nursing experience at all (CNA and LVN jobs are okay, since one never used their RN license or should not have to be considered).

    It has nothing to do when you got your RN license, it's strictly by the graduation date.

    Here's one as an example:

    http://allnurses.com/california-nurs...rd-703266.html

    UCLA, UC Davis, UCSF and even the medium size hospitals etal with 95% of them are very much the same with a certain time one can be considered a "new grad", again based on your date of graduation and none to less than one year of RN experience as the application dictates.

    Perhaps you can see the source of confusion on the part of the reader?

    Your post gave the impression that the state, rather than the facility, determined what the time limit was. I asked you to clarify that so other people reading this thread wouldn't make any decisions under the assumption that the states determine that.

    All of your examples are just details of various facility requirements. I've never said there was no difference there. The point is not the length of time, it's whether or not the state has any official determination of that length of time.
