Hi kali0487! We appear to be in the same boat! My fiance relocated to Denver for a new job. I graduated in Dec 2011. I am moving to Denver this month--the end of March. How are you doing?? I think you should apply for licensure a.s.a.p.. You are waiting until Dec of 2012? So, I would get some experience, if i were you, right.
Hope you respond to this. We can help each other out!

As a former travel RN, apply for your license as soon as you obtain your home state license. However, if your home state is a compact state (just Google compact states), then you may not have to right away.
As far as the new grad situation, it won't be easy, but not impossible if you keep an open mind...
