Landed my first nursing job

  1. I just want to say I'm super excited! I just received a call and was offered a LPN position at SNF/rehab. However i did have to apply outside of my current city to a city 100 miles away because the market here is saturated and I just received my license 3 weeks ago. Currently I work as a tech in a hospital so I'm super excited and nervous to be transitioning into a nursing position.

    Thank you so much. Yes I will be moving as I don't see myself commuting 1 hour 30 minutes each way every day.

    Congratulations on your new position! As a recent grad myself, I know how hard it is to find work. I graduated and got my license in NC and it was very tough to find a job in the area that I lived in. The closest place to me was over 50 miles away and it was still competitive. I've recently moved back to NY because of my husband's job and the first day here I got two calls for interviews. I did the paperwork to transfer my license to NY a few weeks ago and am still waiting on that - but being close to the holidays I kind of expected a lag. Anyways, I guess my point is that as a new grad, sometimes we have to travel a bit, but in the end, it's worth it. Good luck on your first job!
