    For me, I've always just looked at the hospital's website to see what positions are open.

    I sent out resumes to ads in the back of nursing magazines; went through looking for places I might want to live, and had a downhill skiing area nearby. Hey, I was single and footloose back then! The internet did not exist in those days, sent them by dinosaur delivery....

    There's a great website called www.indeed.com. It pulls jobs from other search engines so it gives you a lot of options. I was able to apply all over and got a job offer within a week. I start next week and I'm so excited. My advise is to be persistent and always follow up with HR after to apply on line. Good luck!

    Hospital website is how I found mine.

    But I noticed a lot of our local physician's offices are advertising on craigslist intead of the newspaper (maybe because of $$$).

    I was hired based on a school clinical rotation for my first job and my second one I got by the website.

    You may also consider looking for state positions. The pay is less, but a job is a job, especially in these tough times.

    I posted my resume on monster.com. and was called a few days later. But there are also lots of positions posted on craigslist.com. I'd also check careerbuilder.com. HTH!!!
