    Much will depend if you are a US citizen. Employment opportunities are getting scarce. Are the jobs in your area?

    You need to take the refresher course and apply for internships. New graduates are hired into internships at hospitals here for their orientation and training as a new nurse. The internship length varies depending on the area of nursing. It won't be easy finding a job. Local graduates are struggling here to get hired into an internship. Start networking and applying ASAP.
