I am a new grad RN as well, and have 6yrs LPN experiance. We are moving to Jax sometime between Aug and Sept. I applied to the new grad RN program at Mayo but was told they always are flooded with apps, but only a couple positions really open. Talked to nurse recruiter at shands, they will only hire new grads (regardless of lpn exp we are considered NEW) twice a year, may and march and VERY hard to get in there because it's a Union. St. Vincent was more promissing, but only if they have Tele or med-surg open, and again flooded with apps. Was told that there are 19 RN programs in the greater area and they all graduated/licensed recently...uggghhh I may just look at some LTC's for the time being when I get there. I'll even go back to night shift if i have to....even the Navy base and the Naval air station Jax isn't hiring right now. I tried to do a GS transfer from the army post here in KY and it was a no-go! Was told if willing to go to Gainsville i'd find something with VA hospital though...can't live that far from family though so don't know what i'm going to do!!!!
