    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.
