    The local hospital in Pecos, Texas is willing to hire nurses. However, the town does not appear to be one of those places where most people would want to live or work.

    Do a search on simplyhired.com for "new grad rn" and it comes up with a list of jobs all over the country for new grads. Here is a link to the search, not sure if it will work:

    Plenty of jobs at my hospital. We are constantly being mandated and floated to the ICU when they are short. I'm a .6 fte, and will work more then 40 hours (not b/c I want to) this week.
    I'd love to hand out some jobs to you guys so I don't have to work so much!
    I'm in Northwest Indiana, approximately 45mins out of Chicago.

    It appears to me that a bulk of the jobs available are in rural areas. Most of the "big city" positions have more supply (applicants) than demand (jobs). If a person is willing to either relocate or commute to a rural area, they may have better luck.

    What town? Just curious...I live in Evansville right now but grew up in Syracuse by Warsaw and Goshen.

    Suddenly, in my area, hospitals are hiring pretty much everyone who applies. I've heard that union contracts being renewed and budgets completed are the reason for all the new hiring activity. Not sure though. My husband is a union worker and he tells me that during the contract renewal year, budgets are slashed like crazy, people get laid off left and right, and obviously, nobody gets hired.

    Eagle Pass, Texas (I have never been there, but I have heard that the town is isolated, on the border with Mexico, and not very pretty). The local hospital is called Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center, and they still offer large sign-on bonuses.
    Thank you TheCommuter...I believe these are the kinds of places where there's still opportunity.
