I am still a student nurse, currently living in Virginia, but would like to move back to New Mexico after passing the NCLEX (I am from Santa Fe.) I do not speak Spanish, but I realize that would be important to know wome basics and especially nursing assessment questions in Spanish and was wondering if anyone has any advice for me about how I can go about learning it? Are there any good audio programs or something specifically for nursing? Also, is it really hard for new grads to find jobs in NM right now? I'm willing to move anywhere near Santa Fe or Albuquerque (like within 1 hour commute from either place.) Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
What hospitals are in the Santa Fe area? When I checked the Agapa website it shows only Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center which is a 268-bed, Level III Trauma facility.
I am also looking to move to New Mexico by the end of next year. I am looking at the Albuquerque area; however, now I may have to change my mind because Albuquerque seems to be saturated with universities/colleges so there may be too many nurses/new grad nurses looking for jobs.
If you are not too busy, I would love to communicate with you via email. I have some questions about the Santa Fe, Albuquerque areas as well as other areas (southern end) in New Mexico. I question the commute time between some smaller cities to/from Albequerque and Sante Fe. Since you are from Santa Fe, your opinions about the area would be appreciated.
