Job prospects for new grads.

  1. I am a nursing student now. After I get my Associates degree and pass the NCLEX I want to work on Maui. What are the chances of a new grad finding work in Hawaii?

    do you have prior experience as a CNA or LPN? If you worked as a CNA or LPN during school it does give you an edge over new grads who have not had any sort of "field" experience yet. But that also depends on where you want to work.

    It may be best to gain some experience as a new grad where you already live, then look into opportunities on the island later on. If you are in school right now, maximize your time as a student..make sure you get to know the nurses in your clinical rotation. Make contacts, get references..that will help you get a job in your area.
