Do you have any experience? If not, I've got some bad news for you my friend. I hate to sound discouraging, but I looked for a job for a long, long time and must have applied to hundreds of jobs. Hundreds. I went on 2 interviews and never found a job. I finally confronted a HR department -- at that point, I'd already already given up, so I figured what did I have to lose -- about why it was so difficult to find a job or even get a call back and was told that for every nursing position they advertise, they receive about 200 applications. Looking at my resume/credentials from an HR standpoint, I had zero experience (new graduate) and only an Associate degree. University of Utah, Weber State, BYU all pump out BSN educated nurses every single semester, so an out-of-state Associate with obvious military affiliations (meaning, I move around every 3-4 years) didn't stand a chance. And I didn't just limit my job search
to hospitals. Oh no. I applied at clinics, county health departments, blood/plasma donation centers, dialysis centers, nursing homes, behavioral health centers. Just about everywhere, but correctional facilities. It has been brought up in other threads in this forum if you take the time to read them that Utah is a state where the people that live there mostly stay there. People have been living there for generations, their mothers and grandmothers, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc., all live there and they have no desire to leave the state, so all the hospital systems there have a big pool to choose from that just keep regenerating over and over again. Bitter? Meh. I was when I lived there. I even went on to complete an RN-BSN program thinking it would give me a little bit of a boost. Nope. If you have some freedom with where you want to relocate to, I would keep looking. That's my two cents.
