Advice for the future?

Posted

Okay, I realize this is far in advance, but I'm one of those people who likes to have a plan...

I'm set to graduate with a BSN in July 2012. After graduation, I plan on moving to the Orlando/central FL area because my boyfriend plans to start an internship/career with Disney. Throughout nursing school, everyone stresses the importance of making connections in clinicals and preceptorships to get a job (since it's not easy as a new grad nurse). However, I'm from AL. I'll be doing my clinicals in the Birmingham area and this, of course, can't really help me with getting a job in Orlando. I know the economy/job market can change alot in the next year and a half, but I'd like to have some idea...

Which hospitals have internship type programs for new nurses? Are they difficult to get into? Also, does anyone have any advice about MSN/NPD programs in the central FL area? I'd like to go back to school as well...

Symphie to my knowledge new grad programs are still available in larger hospital settings in central Florida - check the internet for any listings, as they vary for time of year and amount of positions. Orlando, Tampa, and Gainesville have excellent DNP programs, too. Check this out online and best of luck to you!
