When to start applying (1 yr experience)?

  1. Hello! I started working as a new grad inpatient RN in August 2016. I plan on leaving after one year due to the fact that my boyfriend and I have decided to move to a different state (currently in TX and boyfriend's family/home is in Hawaii). I actually really like my job, but that distance is FAR and we have both decided we want to settle there for good. He's already got a job offer and he'll move first in July. Of course, I'm flexible with staying longer.

    When would be a good time to start applying for jobs? At the 10, 11, or 12 month mark?
    I already started the process to endorse my license to HI. Not sure if I'm starting the process too early. Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated! How hard was it to get a job after 1 year of experience?
