Is it hard to get hired by non-local hospitals?

  1. I wont graduate til next fall and I know little about nursing job-hunting. I just cant stand the cold weather here, plus, there are no large cities around. is it hard to find a non-local RN job as a new grad? I dont care too much about the pay, just want to move to a warmer place... how do I make the non-local interview while at school?
    Thx.

    About the only glitch that I can see happening is that you might be asked about your residence. If you haven't moved close to the town where you are seeking employment you are going to be asked how you intend to get to work--commute? It's a legitimate question for an interviewer to ask because they are concerned about an potential employee's attentance. If you plan to commute then they are going to be concerned about your having reliable transportation, especially during bad weather days.

    Do you mean you plan on moving to the new sunny location, but plan on looking for a job before moving there (before graduation)? If so, then a lot of places (around here anyway) will do phone interviews.
