    But no one can answer these questions. There are too many variables. Things are different everywhere. Fiona is right, you need to learn to research this stuff for yourself.You can't just keep firing the same questions over and over.

    You haven't even told us what state you are in. Are you and your girlfriend open to moving if necessary to find work after graduation? Are you in a 2 year or a 4 year program?

    If you are getting a 2 year degree then doing other things to help your RN application stand out would be useful. Work as a nurse's aide or tech while in school. Do a summer internship in a hospital. Volunteer. Take your classes seriously and try to keep your GPA up.

    Many nursing homes will train you to be a CNA. A tech is a nurse's aide (not necessarily certified) that works in the hospital and has a few more skills than ADL"s, such as drawing blood.

    A good GPA is going to be at least passing, but I would aim for A's. It may not always happen, but if you are trying your best and applying yourself then that is a start.

    Many hospitals will offer internships during the summer to nursing students already in a nursing program. You would see these positions advertised on facility's career listings or through their nurse recruitment office

    There is no nursing shortage and there are many new grads who have been searching for their first nursing job for the past year or two. Try reading some of these recent threads:

    It's not as in demand As before in the last few years most new grads can't get jobs right away. Job is not easy and takes a lot of sacrifice. Make sure you aren't just doing it for job security and money cause you may end up miserable in the long run.... Just saying
