New Grad that just graduated top of class w/ BSN

  1. Hello all, this is my first post on here. I am relocating from St. Louis, Missouri to either Omaha or Lincoln. I just graduated at the top of my class with my BSN and I also have a BA in Political Science. I attended Barnes Jewish College Goldfarb School of Nursing and completed all my clinical at a level I trauma center that had Magnet status. From what i can tell, the hospitals only want to hire experienced nurses. I have great letters of rec., I just need someone to give me a chance. Any pointers or tips on who is hiring would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

    Do you have a preference what specialty you work in???

    I would prefer something in acute care setting, but right now I am not being picky. I would be willing to do SNF if I had to get my start somewhere.

    I know that most hospitals in the area are only hiring internal new grads. You may need someone to give you a chance. Network.. I am not sure how but it is essential right now. You could also come in as a CNA and then change jobs within 6 months I believe
