Jobs available for new RN in Lafayette or Indianapolis

  1. Hi everyone, I am nursing student in St. Louis and will graduate with my BSN in May 2014. I am considering moving to Indiana as my fiance will attend graduate school at Purdue. I have been searching for nursing jobs online at hospitals in Lafayette and Indianapolis. I have not seen many positions available, and if there are any they require at least 2 years of experience. Am I just looking in the wrong places? Or is the job market for new RNs in that area really bad? Someone please fill me in before I take the risk to move to Indiana and end up with no job!

    The job market for new RNs in those two cities is really that bad. I work in Indy and we have 25+ applicants for EVERY position we post. We had 40+ for the single new grad position.

    HOWEVER - between those two places are lots and lots of small towns with critical access hospitals. I would highly recommend looking outside the city.

    Thank you so much for the information and recommendation. I will research the hospitals in smaller towns.
