I graduated last Summer from an ADN program in North NJ. Due to family reasons, I have been looking for a job on and off, no offer yet.
I'm getting a little panic, since the longer I cannot find a nursing job, the more chances I'd lose all my educations in school, which I worked hard and got As in most of my nursing classes and graduated with honor.
I have been concentrating on looking for a position in long-term care and nursing homes. My instructor told me North NJ/NYC area and California are among the hardest place to find a RN job for new graduates. She suggested me looking somewhere else.
At this moment I'm willing to move. Any suggestions on which states I should apply RN license through endorsement? I'm thinking about PA, NY, so I can visit my friends in NJ if I need to. Any other suggestions on which states have more open job market? I will apply license for these states. I have good support from my parents so cost of endorsements is not a problem for me. Thanks
