A friend of mine is considering moving to Florida from NJ and she's interested in living in Satellite Beach. What hospitals are located near there (up to an hour away) that are new grad friendly? Thanks!

Satellite Beach is a great place to live. :)

I am not sure of hospitals that are known for being grad-friendly (as I haven't worked as a nurse on the Space Coast), but here are some hospitals that are within an hour's drive:

- Holmes Regional Medical Center (Melbourne)

- Parrish Medical Center (Titusville)

- Wuesthoff Medical Center (Rockledge & Melbourne)

- Cape Canaveral Hospital (Cocoa Beach)

- Palm Bay Hospital (Palm Bay)

Holmes regional hires new grads. They have a gn program, I'm not sure how often but we have 2 on my unit. Parrish has a GN program as well. Now, cape canaveral, Holmes, palm bay, and Viera hospital are all owned by the same company. Health-first. You can do a search at Health-first.org. also, there are new grad programs at Flirida Hospital and Orlando Health in Orlando. Tell your friend Good luck

Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas. I'll be in the ICU internship.

Hi all, I am also a new grad and was planning to move to Melbourne in August or September but now I don't even know if I can :( my boyfriend got a job with Brevard Anesthesia, and has a minimum 1 year contract. The problem is, it's been impossible to geta job so far at Holmes or any Health First hospital. The nurse recruiters told me they aren't hiring ANY new RNs until later in the fall, then they start a new program. I keep asking about more info on this "program" but I've kind of just been ignored now... Very frustrating. I believe I'm a good candidate... 3 years ICU experience as a tech, top of my nursing class, good references, etc. I'm getting nowhere fast and now considering staying here in Gainesville and working in one of the ICUs. I can absolutely get a job here and they hire new RNs all the time. Its just not ideal for me to stay and then my boyfriend moves 3 hours away to Melbourne. Has anyone else had this issue in Melbourne or have any tips on how to get my foot in the door at Holmes? Anyone know details about these new grads programs? Thanks for any help!!! :)
