I am a May 2012 graduate with my BSN. I looked ALL over Cali, even rural areas and nothing. Not one call, interview, anything. I started looking in Texas, and received 5 calls offering interviews. I was offered a position 20 minutes after one of my phone interviews. It is in Midland/Odessa area, so smaller town (about 200,000 people in the area), mid sized hospital (about 340 beds) and they are the only trauma center in the area- plus they are going to train me in the ICU!! Which is almost unheard of here for a new grad. Plan on getting my 2 years experience and moving back to Cali! If you can move for a bit, I would say DO it! Dont waste your time sitting around Cali when you could be getting your experience elsewhere and moving back in 2 years! Best of luck to you all- it is so tough out there, and I know exactly how discouraging it is to have worked so hard and to be rejected so many times.
thanks for sharing!
Bakersfield new grad program accepts new grad -- graduate in June of 2011 or graduated no later than December 2010.. does it expire?
too bad for me since i graduated 2009, passed nclex last May and no nursing work experience at all. so now i don't know if i am still considered as new grad...
i applied in new grad/ OR nurse training program at UC Davis and never heard from them ... the application status changed yesterday from routed to interview
Goodluck to all of us!
