I am taking the NCLEX this July and moving back home to NJ. What is the job outlook like - do a lot of hospitals around central Jersey hire new grads (I'm in Mercer/Middlesex area)? When is a good time period to start applying for jobs?
Also, I'm currently in an accelerated Master's Entry Program but I'm going to stop after the first year because I want to work as a nurse first. The problem is, they don't grant a BSN, just a certificate of completion (although I will have an RN license). Is this going to be a problem when I look for jobs?
