    Kdan ~ There is no need to become defensive. People asked legitimate questions. Whether you had a good reason or not, that's not what an employer will see when they see look at your resume. All they see is you worked for three months. So either you quit or where fired. Either way that's not a good look. To answer your questions. I saw a posting for GN program at Conroe Regional Medical Center. Interviews start in December. Have you tried assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Many of them will hire nurses with little to know no experience. My friend's mom is a RN at a skilled nursing facility. She said this niche is still very old school. You have to go there and fille out applications and try to talk to ADON/DON. They don't pay a lot of attention to resumes via fax or email.

    I know the job market in houston is tough for new grads theres so many of us. Have you ever thought about relocating for a bit at least a year? fort duncan medical center is literally always hiring. there in eagle pass, tx. it's along the border of mexico about 5 hrs from houston but 2 hours from san antonio. they will pay you to come out to interview and put you in a hotel. offer a sign on bonus of 20k-24k. they have a relocation package as well. the town is small and quiet. alot of people dont like it but its really not that bad. if you can tough it out for about a year its not a bad deal. just food for thought. pm me if you have any other questions

    Hi all. I'm one of the desperate new grad trying to find a job. However did come across fort Duncan, how is the nursing new grad program here? And how bad is the location? Is it really bad as it make out to be? I'm from CA so I believe there will be culture shock but I can sacrifice to certain extent. Help!
