- 0Jul 7, '12 by JRichI just graduated with my ADN in May from a Minnesota college. Passed boards June 4th obtaining my North Dakota RN license. I sent out hundreds of resumes down in the Dallas and Houston area (I knew I wanted to move to Texas). I got an interview in Webster, TX. Which is like 20-30 miles south of Houston. I got the job instantly!! I am loving the area, and cannot wait to start my new job on Monday!
