Which States/Cities/Hospitals are Easier for a New Grad to get a Job?
- 0Dec 24, '12 by Erica2012Hi Everyone,
I have officially started my job hunting for 3 months and yes..job market is tough especially for a new grad RN like me who doesn't have experience as a CNA or EMT.
I feel like I have so much passion for becoming a nurse and did pretty well at school and clinical rotation..still can't find a job.......
I have tried the states like NC, MD, VA, upstate NY, Austin and Houston area in TX, Washington DC...got like three interviews but the ladies who interviewed me told me that I was competing with more than 200 other applicants...and even though I thought I did fine on the phone interviews I didn't get the jobs.
I don't mind relocating anywhere in the United States and I can work in any units. Could anyone please give me a direction and advice on which states/cities/ hospitals are easier for me to get a RN job?
Thank you so much ! I really appreciate any comments !

I will be doing so myself after graduation, as well as checking into new grad nurse residency programs.

Joes is pretty competitive in pay with other facility in major cities. Also a new hospital is set to open August 2013 in College Station, Texas Scott and White I do not know what their pay is for RN but that might be a place to check out. Good luck.
