Ok, here's my situation.
I'm just entering a nursing program, so in 2 years I'll be an RN. Once I become an RN (and paramedic), I'd really like to work at a lvl 1 trauma center. Los Angeles is the #1 place on my list of places to go. However, there is one small issue.
I live in Virginia.
If I were to apply for a nursing position at a hospital in LA (assuming they had spots available), how likely is it that I'd get a job there, based on the fact I live across the country? Do hospitals offer relocation assistance, as some other jobs do? My dream has always been to get to LA and either work in a hospital or as a paramedic on the streets in Glendale or Burbank.
Any insight into this matter is greatly appreciated!
