I am currently about half-way through my accelerated BSN program (do not live in FL currently) and am interested in working in Tampa/St. Petersburg area in Florida. I know some hospitals have specific new grad (RN) websites and application. So far I haven't been able to find a single hospital in that area that hires new grads.... Does anyone know of any kind of nurse residency or new grad programs in Tampa area?... or should I just apply to regular positions that "prefer" experience but don't "require" it?
Also, if I finish in spring of 2013, when should I apply?..I heard december from some and march from others....
