I live in California and here it is almost a definete you will have a job once you have passed boards! Strikes me odd that it is any different in Alabama???? The hospitals here will even hire in specialty units and trian you. I can not wait!! I have also heard of other states and hospitals that hire new grads. Are you in a small area or have you looked at only a few places?

I was wondering how in the world you get hired as a new graduate when all the jobs I've been seeing in the papers and stuff require at least one year of med-surg experience...do you have to have experience to be a med-surg nurse? lol
