I am a registered nurse in the process of applying to get my MSN-FNP. Instead of getting my FNP and staying in the corrupt state of Illinois after graduation, I would like to start fresh in a new state. Are there any other NP's who have done this? When I graduated nursing school
, I had a job lined up 5 months before I even graduated. Is it possible to start applying for jobs a couple months prior to graduation? Should I become licensed in the states I'm considering moving to to get a head start? I'm trying to research this as much as possible while I'm 3 years ahead.
