I am one month away from graduating with an RN degree. I live in a very rural part of northern minnesota. there is a hospital here (only 16 beds though) and virtually no demand for nurses. And, i'm afraid, if a job ever does open up, it would clearly be given to someone with experience. So. I need to find a job elsewhere. The closest next hospital is 2 1/2 hours away (in Duluth) with the Cities being 5 hours away. I am willing to commute if I could find a part-time job with consecutive hours. But...my next problem is...there aren't very many openings at any of those hospitals either and all of the openings REQUIRE at least one year of experience. SO...how do i GET that experience? Especially from way up here. We can't move right now...we just bought a house and my husband really can't' quit his job. So I can't really do a graduate nurse internship in some other state because i can't commit to worker there for 2 years. I am desperate and getting really worried. ANY ideas/thoughts/advice would be VERY VERY appreciated. thanks in advance!
