    HI, to be honest the market is really competative in Birmingham. I am a new Grad and it took me till August to get a job. I had been looking since April. I believe that any of the Hospitals in B'ham would be fine. I like Uab personally, they have been great answered all of my questions without making me feel silly.
    I would look at what you like as far as units. You can go to UAB nursing .org and look up the Units at Uab. It will tell you what the patient to nurse Ratio is as well as the type of patients you will deal with.

    Good Luck.

    I graduated from a community college here in alabama and got my RN. At my community college they have a night and weekend program for those who have to work fulltime. You might check into your area and see if they have such a program in your area.

    Good Luck

    Sounds like your classmates need to take some **** and get over themselves. You are the one who will be in a better position within a few months while they are still looking for a job and not using their skills.

    Hi, I am a new RN and just got hired at UAB last month. They are hiring but you really need to sell yourself hard. UAB wants to know that you really want to work for them. Also, if you know anyone that has been working there for awhile ask them to drop your name to the Nurse recruiter for their area of the Hospital. Stay persistent and never give up.

    Good Luck.

    I got into Nursing because of the ability to make a good living for my Family. The more I get into it the more I really enjoy helping the Patients.

    I think that it would make more sense to have a National license then as a Nurse moves from state to state there is a mandatory class about that particular state's Nurse Practice Act.

    Hi, I went back to school at 30 and Graduated and am now an RN. I used my money from the military to help pay for school. I have heard of some college programs for Nursing that are accredited that go part-time for those who need to work Full-time. I love what I do now and would not trade it for all the money in the World.

    Good Luck

    HI, You might try the VA Medical center in Montgomery, or Baptist Hospital. THe Va might be my first choice though because as long as you have an Active License you do not have to get an Alabama license. At least that is what I have been told. Hope this helps.
