Looking to relcoate

  1. hey everyone!

    so i'm a new grad (if may 09 is still considered new) bsn-rn looking to relocate because of the tough market here and was wondering how the outlook is for jobs in dc for a new grad with no nursing experience? i am pretty flexible as for the area, i would like med-surg for initial experience but would be willing to fill unit needs whatever they may be.

    i only just started looking in the dc area so i don't know about specific new grad orientation times for hospitals and other useful information. should i just apply directly to open hospital positions and see what comes up? any tips on good hosptials to apply to?

    any help would be most appreciated

    The job market is very tough here too. I of several new grads (and old-new grads) who haven't been able to find work as a RN. The December grads are now just taking NCLEX and are also looking for jobs. It maybe better to apply to a hospital in a rural location if you are really intent on moving. I have heard that rural areas still have openings as everyone wants to work in the big cities and suburbs.
