RN New GradRegister Today!
- by kjack0799 May 22, '10Hello everyone I am new to the site. I am a recent RN graduate from Illinois looking to relocate to Georgia. My husband is already there so I am of course desperate to get me and my daughter there too. I need a job though. I have applied everywhere and I have only got one call back. I have been applying for months. I have a ADN but am currently enrolled to get my BSN. I also am ACLS and BCLS certified. I am Georgia licensed now as well. So can anybody help me out because its getting very frustrating thanks and God Bless!!

- May 22, '10 by +onehave you tried LTC? one of the facilities that I used to go to work at has an opening for RN's i'm from IL too.
- May 22, '10 by kjack0799Yes I have tried everywhere didn't see too many LTC positions though. Where did you work???
- May 22, '10 by JenRN30Are you moving to the Atlanta area? I had to move away because I couldn't find a job (graduated Dec. 09). However, most of my classmates eventually found jobs with some persistence. Have you seen anything about the Grady nurse extern positions? If you work as a nurse extern (paid), they will hire you after the externship is over. Also, try Dekalb. Had a few classmates end up there.
- May 22, '10 by +oneIf you're near the downtown chicago area some of the hospitals there have nurse externship programs, i dunno when is the final dates for signing up though. :/
- May 22, '10 by JEAN09Georgia has a very slow job market. I have a aunt who moved down there and she could not find a job, and she had over 3-5 years experience. Also she would always complain about the pay difference. So she eventually moved back to NJ. Good luck, the key to be successful is to be persistent, and continue apply!!
- May 24, '10 by kjack0799Hi +one can you please tell me the name of the LTC u worked for thanks!!
- May 24, '10 by whodatnurseOne of my classmates was from the Atlanta area. She returned there after graduation last year and is still looking. I'm afraid it's pretty tough there right now (as much of elsewhere).
Good luck with your search. Be persistent and try not to get discouraged. I wish you the best.
