new grad relocating

  1. 0 I am thinking of relocating to Maryland. I am a fairly new grad with 6 months of homecare experience..pediatrics..I would love to work in a hospital or nursing home. Any thoughts or advice?

    Its a tough market here, not sure how it compares to others. I am a new grad and have sent out approximately 50 applications, and have had only one interview, in which I didnt get the job. If at all possible, I would suggest holding off until you have that "golden" one year experience. With six months in home care, you would likely still be concidered new and need a whole fellowship.

    Let me clarify that I will only relocate if I am offered a job. As for homecare I hear not everyone considers this experience. I'm just trying to open up my chances of getting a job.

    Thanks LAtoMD I am in the process of getting my BSN. I graduated with an associates in December 10. Unfortunately NJ is not part of the compact states. Anybody think it's better to apply for a Maryland license or can I do the temporary license if I get a job??
