I'm graduating this June with a BSN from Nevada. I was wondering if any new graduates from out of state had any difficulties finding a job when they moved to the Bay Area. I was hoping to work in or close by San Jose. Where are the best places to apply for jobs, and are there available nurse residency/new grad programs?

Many new grads that live in the bay area have to relocate to gain the experience necessary to land a job. It's a very over-saturated market and the hospitals have the ability to be very picky. If you are insistent on working in CA, you may have to work in a less desirable area like Modesto, Fresno, or Bakersfield before you can find a Bay-area job.

Next to impossible from what I hear. You should definitely explore other markets outside of California.

I am also a new grad (BSN) looking for a job in San Jose area beginning in January (2020). do you know if there is a better chance to find a job because it is mid year, not just in the graduation time frame (May/June)? Any suggestions on hospitals or new grad programs to at least look at?
