    Last week, I noticed an ad for recruitment of nurses to North Dakota. They were even willing to cover housing costs. Sure, it's cold, but if you need a job who cares about the cold?

    United Regional Hospital in Wichita Falls, TX
    North Texas State Hospital in Wichta Falls and Vernon
    Clay County Memorial Hospital in Henrietta, TX

    Come on down to rural Texas - it's only cold half the year. And the other half.. well, it is very hot. And dry. But the people are nice.

    Hey do travel it pays great. Work is everywhere. Even where you are. You are free to do it. Jump on its a no lose thing. If you don't like a place you know you can move on in a few months.

    I work in a town called Sayre, PA, it's a large teaching hospital and we are always hiring. I work on a step down cardiac floor and we need experienced nurses bad. It's a great hospital to work at, I love my job. PM me and I will give you information. This is a beautiful area.

    Look up Appalachian Regional Healthcare, or ARH. These are hospitals located
    in the mountains of KY and WV. They are usually hiring; I'm sure you can understand
    why.

    I live in KY, though not in any of the mountainous areas... but I have a fondness
    for many areas of Eastern KY; there is a lot of beauty. It would be a good place
    to gain some experience, anyway. =)

    San Antonio Texas and Altanta but I don't think the wages will compare to Calif. but the cost of living is also less in Georgia. I agree with some on the other posters though..not living in the area or having a license in the state you are interested in may be a hinderance. Employers can be very picky with the economy as it is now so they are not willing to wait/pay for relocation etc. in most cases.

    www.usajobs.gov is another option - as long as you have a valid license in one state you don't need it for jobs listed here in the state you are applying to

    Might I suggest trying travel nursing. There are always tons of options nationwide for various lengthed commitments, it's a great way to test a new location before a permanent move, you get paid to see the country, and it's a fantastic way to build your resume. I have similiar credentials to yours and have been traveling for 4 years and I LOVE it! Just remember to stay registered with more than 1 service (there are dozens to choose from) because each facility is contracted with certain agencies.
    I wouldn't think you would get any training with travel nurse positions. I'm a nurse that has been working in Home care for a year (only job I could get). I need nursing skills. Can't imagine travel nursing would except newish nurses.

    That is Correct...Travel Nursing only accepts RNs with TWO years of HOSPITAL experience, as per what I have seen in every ad for Traveler Nurses. So even if you have clinic (outpatient) or home care experience you would not qualify unless you had hospital experience at some point. A lot of Travel Agencies are even posting in their ads: Attention No new grads or nurses with no experience. This is due because as a Traveler RN you have to be ready to start working with no (or maybe a day or two of orientation to the hospital's regulations/data system), they will not train. The same goes for any per diem positions (non-traveler). Per Diem positions expect you to be ready to work on your own with no training. This was told to me by a recruiter that emailed me to let me know why I was not selected for per diem position.

    Wow that's a good idea, I'll take that into consideration when I get experience
