There seem to be a few RN positions for new grads at Orlando Health. I think they were posted sometime this week, as I don't think they were there last week.
Continue to keep checking hospitals on the west coast as well - like in Hillsborough and Pinellas County. Some hospitals hired a lot of new grads right after all the graduations in May, so they are not hiring right now, but a few of them told me to check back later (like a month or so).
I stay in Cleveland, Oh and I'm dealing with the same problem.
It seems as if no one is hiring new grads now...
I was looking to relocate to FL or GA, but I see this problem
Well, good luck!
