Advice for new grad in VB/Norfolk area
- 0Aug 12, '12 by laciej03Any advice on finding a new grad job in the VB/Norfolk area? I recently moved to VB from PA where I just graduated in April with my BSN from Pitt. Passed my nclex a few weeks ago and have my VA license.
I have been applying relentlessly for months and months without a single interview or call. I'm getting a little desperate here! Any one have any advice, connections or info on the RN job market in the area?!
Anything will help, let me know if you would like more info

I graduated in December, passed NCLEX on February and finally got a job in august...the Market is tight around here...those desperate for jobs are accepting LTC, psych, or dialysis centers...yes RN new grads are everywhere...this area has about 8 schools of nursing.

Just like Christypol said, it takes a while in this area. Lots of hospitals, but also lots of nursing schools. Try thinking outside the box - there's plasma centers, lots of home health care, etc.
