Hi all. I'm graduating in May with my FNP. I'm crippled with fear that I won't find a job. When should I start applying to places?? I'm a NURSE corps scholar so I have to work somewhere with a HPSA > 14.  Living in OR, outside Portland. 

Tips please. I'm doing my final rotations at large family practice clinic if that matters at all.

Join your states' APRN organization, attend meetings, network. 

Contact some alumni from your school and see if they know of any jobs. 

 

Best wishes

I also won a HRSA scholarship and had no trouble finding a job.  You have to work in an underserved area, and those areas are desperate for providers.  I got 9 job offers in the Western US.  Put together a good resume, do a lot of networking, have a good profile on LinkedIn and put your resume on all the recruiting sites like Indeed, etc.  Good luck.
