Any New Grad nurses looking to move???

Posted

Im a new grad from Boston and am thinking about moving to Cali or somehwere different. its so hard to find a new grad job in Boston right now and i want a change....

I am. I am moving from TN to So Cal where I know not a soul. I know it won't be easy but am like you and just want to get away for a while.

oh really...did you already get a job/place to live?...

yes, I have a job at Loma Linda Childrens but am still looking for a place to live.

hi I am getting ready to move this Sat from Pittsburgh to Annapolis Md to work as a new grad in the ER and I cant wait. I went their for their year long new grad internship program I couldnt find any hospitals that didnt have anything but a 8 week orientation and I didnt want that. good luck!!!! think of it as a new adventure!!:jester:

I'm actually thinking of moving to either Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee....if I can find a job that is. I can't find one in KY so its time to open up my options. I worked in AZ for 4 years as an LPN and loved it before moving back home to KY, but don't want to mmove back to Phoenix as the cost of living is horrendous. I actually don't know exactly where I want to move to, only that I want to work NICU :-)

Phx is where I am from. Moved to Tx to go to school 2 years ago and would love to go back home. My whole family is there. But I don't see much in the way of jobs for LVN's out there. figured I would wait til I finish RN. Where did you work out there? The only thing I have seen is LTC.

Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn, Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital Scottsdale, Maricopa County Medical Center...which is why I think I'm now having difficulty find a job now. St. Lukes also hires LPN's as well as Banner Health and St. Josephs. At least they did a few years ago. Check out www.azhealthjobs.com

Why would that make it difficult for you to get a job now? Thank you so much for the info! Hope you find what you are looking for soon!

Because I had all those in the spate of 3-4 years. I think that is now why I'm having trouble getting hired as a new grad RN even though they are not all listed on my resume as I've only gone back 5 years or so on that one.

Chicago is a very nice city area......a welcome change from the northeast...

I am a new grad from the Boston area and I am so frustrated that I cannot get a job anywhere around here. I thought that once I passed my boards it might get easier but apparently there is some sort of hiring freeze. My classmates are having the same problem. The hospital I worked at as an aide in school won't even hire me. So instead of working in rehab or ltc I have been seriously considering moving too. Maybe cali or florida maybe hawaii? I dont know. This wasnt in my plans and I don't really want to move from my family and friends, but I am young with no commitments and am up for an adventure. I dont know if it would be too overwhelming starting a new job in a new career as a new grad in a new place without my usual support system close by... I do know that there are shortages in this country though and people willing to pay sign on bonuses and loan forgiveness. I am just so stressed about the whole situation, I wish someone would have warned me....
