I'm a new grad RN (graduated in May) living in San Diego. I'm currently volunteering at a school as a school nurse and also working at a flu shot clinic while I try to get my foot in the door at any hospital. My husband has put in for a transfer for Ohio and I wanted to know how tight/competitive/realistic the job market is in areas like Sandusky and Toledo. I've found a few hospitals in Ohio that offer new grad RN programs but I wanted to know how competitive the industry is in that area. Just to give you a taste of what it's like in San Diego, we had over 30000 applicants for 12 positions at the local chidren's hospital, while 2000 applied for only 2 ER positions at a local adult hospital. I'm still applying for positions here, but I wanted to know if the grass was greener in another state.
Thanks for any information that you guys can give me.
