Sanford will hire new grads too, though I don't think they'll get a bonus. Needless to say, North Dakota hospitals are the only hospitals I have received call backs within a few days of filing my application. That includes Sanford.
Just came back from visiting North Dakota too for interviews. It will take a while to get used to cows, corn, cows, and more corn. I dread the winters, although from what I heard from locals, last year's winter was mild. Fargo was the nicest city in North Dakota, and there's more housing there than in other cities. I hope for offers from the hospitals I interviewed with.
