I'm from NYC and recently graduated with my BSN in NYC as well. The job market is tough around here and I have my sights set on possibly moving out of state and looking for work elsewhere, more specifically Washington DC, MD, or even VA (near DC). I don't drive (yet) so I would need to work in a place that's accessible with the metro/public transportation.
A friend of mine has a place I could stay while I get myself settled and I'm thinking this could be a real possibility. Here are my questions.
Do I have to get endorsed by MD and DC first, before applying for jobs? Do you think employers would mind if I have a NY license while applying and allowing me to get endorsed once I find work? Does that lower my chances?
How would you say the job market is for a new graduate in the MD/DC area?
Any pieces of advice for me?
