I'm EMPLOYED after relocating to New England, FINALLY!


I graduated Dec of 2009 and immediately relocated to Southern New England. I knew NO ONE here, let alone in the hospitals. I applied everywhere. After HUNDREDS of apps, and quite a bit of really creative networking, I finally started to get offered interviews. A few were cancelled for various reasons. Finally I went on my first interviews last week, one for a major teaching hospital, one for a clinic. Both really, really great positions.

Today the hospital called and offered me the position!!!! I'm a Neonatal ICU nurse now!!
