Relocating to Colorado from Texas
- 0Feb 19 by lbarr9027I am a nursing student in Texas and will be graduating in May with a BSN. I will be moving to Colorado after school because my boyfriend's job. I have a bunch of anxiety about the transition and finding a job there. I was wondering which hospitals in the Colorado Springs to Denver area are the best to work at. And do any hospitals hire graduate nurses? Any advice on the subject to make this transition easier and help me find a job would be greatly appreciated.
- 1Feb 19 by not.done.yet GuideI am not from Colorado (actually I am in Texas too), but the word on the street is that it is one of the toughest markets in the US, not far behind California and New York. If you have the option to stay in Texas and work for a year, that would probably be a far wiser plan of action.

If you have done a LPN-RN or RN-BSN program there aren't many that will hire you. The job market is extremely hard to get into, unless you know someone. Definitely make sure you can live off of one income for a long time!
