When to start applying for jobs?

  1. Hello, I will be graduating at the end of June. I'm not sure when would be the best time to start applying. I don't want to start too early or too late . Hence, my dilemma. Any suggestions? Thank you

    Start applying when you are licensed.
    there are so many licensed nurses looking for jobs, you will probably get an auto reject if you apply without having been licensed.

    i am recently graduated and the all the nurse managers and HR that i spoke to in person when i did my clinical's said to apply when i get licensed. Otherwise they wouldnt look at my resume much less hire an unlicensed new grad. the days of nurse graduate getting hired are long gone and will probably never be back.
