    I graduated in May from a school in MN, obtained my license in North Dakota, and moved to Texas 3 weeks ago. I put out like 200 applications and got 1 call for an interview. Luckily I got that job. So I suggest just put out a ton of applications. I am just south of Houston in the Clear Lake/Webster area. The place I work at just hired a bunch of new RN's without any experience and a lot of them are ADN's (I am an ADN). Good Luck!!! I hope you enjoy Texas when you get here!
