Graduate May 2011.. too early to start applying for Nursing jobs??


Hello, I graduate May 2011 and from the looks of the current forums I see that it is extremely difficult to find RN jobs nowadays...I was thinking of applying to jobs in March but would it be too early to start applying to jobs in January??? Do hospitals look and see that you havent even graduated yet or that you wont be graduating until 4 months later?? Also I have a DUI on my record so I know it will be very very very hard for me to get a job. So please give me your advice on applying to jobs this early before graduation. Thanks in advance!!!!

I graduated early this month (Dec. 2010) and began my search in November. I don't see anything wrong with contacting the nurse recruiters and getting your name out there. Good luck!
