I am a ANP graduate from December 2008. I just took boards on April 29th (and passed whooo-hooo
!). I currently reside 45-50 minutes outside Birmingham, AL, but I am planning on relocating to Birmingham this summer. Since Birmingham is filled with many hospitals, including UAB-our state's best teaching facility, you would think there would be several open positions. Unfortunately, I am having a hard time finding listings for these positions.
I am hoping you all can provide me with tips on finding open positons. I have found positions in the papers and local jobsites (UAB included), but I also know that often positions are not listed. I have also joined our local NP Association for networking purposes. Recently, I spent a day going to practices that I am interested in, and introducing myself while leaving a cover letter, CV, and resume for review. Is there anything else that I may do to become more accessible to NP jobs? Am I missing something? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
