So, I see all of these posts regarding the new grad market in Houston being so terrible, but what about nurses with experience, but not much? My husband's group is being transferred to Houston from West TX sometime between July-September, at this point I will have approximately 1 year of ICU experience. I have spent the evening researching available jobs and see they can have anywhere from 1-3 years of experience listed as the minimum requirement.
Some Information about me:
-I am currently enrolled in an RN-BSN and will be finished in December of this year (a couple of months after I actually move)
-I have ACLS and PALS
-Will have my CCRN
-Completed a Versant RN Residency Program
-Various volunteer work around the community, as well as teach classes to new Versant Residents coming to the hospital
Would any of this allow me to be a competitive applicant and at least score an interview with any hospitals in the area? I know it hurts me that I will not actually have my BSN at the point of application and that I only have 1 year of ICU experience.
Any comments, tips, or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much
