There are 100s of unemployed new grads here in the metro Albuquerque area.
I am an unemployed Respiratory Therapist who moved to ABQ from Buffalo, NY- applied to over 30 RT positions with no hire, even though I have more critical care RT experience than most RT's here.
Also- I have applied for 15 Nursing Tech positions with no hire. I am a medic in the Army Reserves, along with being a second semester ADN student.
Long story short- unless you know someone (and I know multiple people) I wouldn't have much faith in obtaining a job in ABQ.
If you were willing to work in Gallup, Roswell, or remote facilities then you might have an opportunity.
I anticipate packing my belongings and relocating once I graduate.
You have a betetr chance since I presume that you have been working as a RN while completing your BSN. Apply and see what happens.
