I just got hired on in NC as a graduate from Arizona, but as corbinRN already mentioned it will probably really help to have someone you know at a hospital, which is how I was able to get an interview. In fact, when I was initially told to go ahead and apply to get in the system, I was asked if I was a graduate of a NC nursing program
and then autorejected the next morning, and I'm sure it was that. Good luck to you though. I'm sure with enough patience and diligence you can find a spot!
