I currently live in Miami and the job market is so saturated that it is almost impossible to find an RN job here without HR jerking you around and then telling you later that you need experience to get a job, which is the classic catch 22 when the job market is tight or nonexistant in an area.
Anyway, My grandmother and aunt both live in (Near) Bismarck, ND and they've offered to put me up if I can actually get a job as an RN in a hospital or clinic. I've been out of school for about 9 months, but I do have my BSN degree and BLS, ACLS, PALS certifications and I have taken a Phlebotomy course to keep up my skills.
Is there anyone who has knowledge of whether a move would be a good idea for me? I've looked at the web sites for Med Center One and St. Alexis but I really can't get a feel if I'd have a good shot at being hired.
Any insight would be really welcomed.
Thank so much in advance.
St. Alexius hires both BSN and ASN nurses into thier new grad positions, as a new grad you basically get to pick the department you want to work in with the execption of ER! I have worked at St. Alexius for over 2 years and they are definietly a teaching hospital! Working on mom/baby we had over 5 schools coming in to do clinicals and that was just nursing. There are RT, Pharm, MD and various others programs who use are facilitys for teaching purposes!
