    I graduated in May, and starting applying for jobs in Feb before graduation and I still didn't get any interviews until after I had my license in July. Many did get hired before graduation but they already worked at the hospitals or knew someone. I just started orientation 3 weeks ago, so it took over 3 months after graduation to find a job.

    Hello all! I passed NCLEX in Aug but still waiting for my NJ license by endorsment. I've been looking for a job a while now but hospitals are just no go for a new grads At least I got a job offer from a home health care agency to be a visiting nurse, and now, after reading all these posts I think I might accept it. Working in a hospital is my dream but unfortunately we still have to pay our loans and bills...
    Good luck to you new grads! I hope we'll all find our dream jobs soon

    Just curious: most home health care agencies want you to have 2 years of experience, or at least the ones I've checked out. The agency that made you the offer is willing to take you right out of school? That's good to know!

    Somerset Medical Center, in Somerville, is hiring new grads.

    Apply online at http://www.somersetmedicalcenter.com/body.cfm?id=470 and then followup with a phone call.

    Very glad my school pushed us to start applying for jobs in December even though graduation wasn't until the following June.

    Bayada Nurses Home Care hire new grad LPN/RN with 0-1 years experience. They even have a sign on bonus for some new grad nurse jobs.

    I've been working for a Home Health agency as a receptionist for almost 2 years, now they offer me a job. There are many companies like mine: bayada nurses, loving care, care finders, H&H etc. Just search online guys. There are 2 types of nursing: skilled and a home health aide supervision.

    I have heard through the grapevine, that some area hospitals are now hiring again and hiring new grads. Ocean Med, Kimball, Monmouth med, Riverview and Robert Wood Johnson.
    This is for Ocean and Monmouth Counties.
    Good luck to everyone

    Hi JerseyGirl73,

    I actually applied to their positions online recently. I decided to make a packet including my resume, degrees, letter of recommendation. I actually want to drop it of so i can make a personal attempt. Do you think I should give it to the hospital or to meridian health center talent search office?

    I'm not JerseyGirl73(she hadnt been on this site since 2019) but I personally know a Meridian recruiter. She has told me Do NOT bring anything to the hospital the recruiters & HR are all off site in the corporate and satellite offices. They do not accept any paperwork unsolicited and only accept online applications. Their recruiters do go to many of the local job fairs and that is one of the few ways that you can hand over information personally. You can try calling the center for talent selection to make arrangements to drop something off (they may tell you to send it electronically) but showing up unannounced is not recommended.

    ETA this thread is nearly 4 years old so much of the info is likely outdated.
