Okay guys, let's see if ya'll can help me out. I will be graduating in Dec and I've heard from several sources I should start looking for a graduate nurse position sooner than later. My problem is that I can't find any Indianapolis hospitals that are advertising for nurse graduate positions.
I've looked at the websites and can't find much of anything referring to new grad programs. I guess it is made even trickier because I want to go straight into psych. I have found lots of positions available for behavioral health nurses but none posted for new grads. I have 5 years experience working as a tech\case manager on an inpatient psychiatric unit, so hopefully this will get me in the door.
Should I apply to regular job posting and specify that I will be a new grad in December? Will they want to wait that long to fill that spot?
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me of a hospital with a good new grad program that has positions on their psych unit and how I would go about obtaining a position there.
Thanks for reading, sorry if I am rambling. I'm just to excited to be gearing up for graduation and finally becoming an RN.
