From Hawaii, working at a hospital in hawaii,
New grad jobs here are tough...many unit secretaries, nurse assistants, etc are BSNs waiting for a new grad opportunity. I'd go far to say that they almost expect you to have some kind of NA/secretary experience (1yr+) within the hospital itself before you'll be considered. Even LTC/home health jobs are hard to come by for BSN grads d/t high new grad demand/not a lot of inpatient opportunity. I was in a new grad program about a year ago and my cohort had around 40 people, all of them were from Hawaii and had graduated from a nursing school
in Hawaii, one was from san diego and had gone to UH, and myself and another girl were the only two that had gone to schools
in the mainland, and we were both from Hawaii.
I think hospitals out here are biased towards new grads that are from Hawaii/went to school here because they know they'll stay (its home, not a lot of people move from hawaii to the mainland unless its later on in their career).
Like LVHI_RN said, maybe volunteering, making connections, try there. LTC/home health/temp staffing.
Sorry to be so grim, I really do hope you do find something here, just wanted to give you a clearer picture. Good luck to you :-D
