    Yikes! Sorry to hear that. I'm a nurse in Norfolk and work for Hope in Home Care Home Health. They started an office in Richmond last year. I'm not sure if they hire new grads but it seems like they are always hiring. I'm also military and don't know much about the civilian hospitals. I interviewed at Sentara General for a 2nd job and found the pay to be incredibly low compared to my first jobs on the West Coast which is why I ended up going with home health. Contractors at military facilities seem to make good money. Wish you luck!

    It is easy to find a nursing job, especially in VA.
