Hello everyone! I am going to begin applying for jobs as a new nurse soon, and I was wondering if anyone could offer insight into how early is too early to start applying? Many of my classmates have already received job offers, but this is in another state. It seems that Metro Detroit doesn't work quite the same. I'm taking the NCLEX this summer (July, probably). I know the job market stinks right now, but I'm from the Detroit area, as well as the rest of my family, so it has always been my plan to start my life there after graduating with my BSN. I have some hospital experience which should hopefully help my chances a bit. Thanks!
