Hello from San Francisco

  1. Do you love the City as much as I do? I am a native who has returned from New York City as a new grad! I am finding it a lot more tough to find a job than I thought it would be considering the demand for nurses. I found a program at St. Mary's for new grads, but not in my area of focus--women's health and geriatrics. I have started to look outside of hospitals to see if I have more luck there. Any ideas on how to find good clinic or nursing home jobs? I already love the advice and support I have gotten here. Thank you everyone! This is a great idea! I just get distracted by how busy the layout is.

    Look forward to talking with you!

    Welcome to these forums! I'm a native Southern Californian who has moved far away from the Golden State. I hope you enjoy your time spent here.

    Since you have moved around, I have a nursing license question for you. If I have a license in New York, and I am currently in the process of getting a CA license, can I also get a license in Illilios where I just may have a job offer?

    Oh! And what is the best way to get started in geriatrics?

    Thanks for the hello!

    The easiest way to work in geriatrics is, of course, to work in a nursing home. It is not the most glamorous or romanticized line of work, but I love working with the elderly.

    Welcome to allnurses.com! I would suggest dropping by the CA State Forum at: https://allnurses.com/forums/f137/ . Illinois' is at: https://allnurses.com/forums/f145/ .

    You can get a license anywhere, but please be aware of the different rules and regs that go with the licenses....some States require CEU's, some don't. Here is a link to the different BON's: https://allnurses.com/forums/boards-of-nursing.php Good luck!
