    The facility I used to work at (part of the Mayo System) and the hospitals in Anchorage are only hiring BSN's or higher. If you can relocate, try IHS facilities. Sometimes you do not even need to change your state license because of IHS. You can also get loan repayments!
    This is great advice.

    hello, I recently graduated from an Entry Level MSN program. My BA was in something not related to nursing. I understand here in CA it can be challenging landing a job, but I felt with a MSN I might have an edge...not the case. My first interview the nurse manager straight out said she hates hiring MSN students because once we work for a year, we leave or get promoted. She said I would not be a good investment because there would be so much financial opportunities for me after I work one year, and I would just leave them which means she has to hire someone again. I told my classmate and he said same thing happened to him. With his interview they said a MSN student are not "equipped" to do bedside nursing. Just sharing my story. Luckily for me, I landed a job - only by networking.
