Hi all!

I graduate Aug 2019 and ideally would like to land a job before graduation and upon passing the NCLEX (hopefully early-mid Sept). I've already scouted out a list of hospitals all over CA as far north of the Oregon border to Mexico though it seems most facilities require a license here to be considered, even some rural hospitals.

I've noticed states outside of CA are more willing to accept out-of-state applicants if they obtain their state's license prior to start date so I've expanded my search to consider applying to new grad residency programs out of state and noticed that most have cohorts that start January - March for December graduates and June - August for May graduates.

I am seriously willing to leave CA if I can have a good offer elsewhere for the experience, even if it's low pay. I rather the experience more than anything! Are there any new grad residency programs that have more start dates like September - November? I'd hate to start work in 2020 or miss out on an opportunity when my graduation/NCLEX dates are right at the cusp! :eek:

I know this may be too soon to think about, but I like to plan ahead and seek out my options. Thanks in advance.

providence. they are all over oregon, washington, montana, alaska and more. Plus once you have been there long enough you can transfer within the organization and hopefully get a job closer to the area you may prefer but is more of a competitive job market

Parkland Hospital in Dallas staggers their residency start dates. Different specialties start at different times of year.

Remember 'low pay' is relative. CA may have higher pay, but they also have a much higher cost of living. A lower pay may be a lower cost of living, so it evens out. I have a friend that moved from CA to here (IN). She took about a $20/hr paycut, BUT, with COL she has a much better home with acreage and can afford so much more. Don't just look at $$$ when accepting a job if you are willing to move. Use those critical thinking skills to balance in the other things as well. Good luck!
