0Hello nurses, so hopefully some could share their job hunt experience when applying for RN position as a New Grad or experienced nurses starting a career in a new state? I just want to know the timeframe from sending out resume online , got an interview and up to first day of work. Is it hospital,rehab center or home health? How was the applying experience in your state especially Nevada?

There is no time frame. Each step of the way has many variables that effect the hiring process.

For instance, I've applied on line... didn't hear back for 6 months. You may get an immediate response or no response and that is just the first step!

Where have you applied?

It can vary a lot. I'm not in Nevada but where I am working currently (in a hospital, as a new grad) it was a bit more than 3 months from filling out the application on line to my first day working. (I got a call to schedule an interview about 2 weeks after applying online. But did not interview for another 5 weeks.) However, I had another (hospital) job offer that was a much shorter time frame. From filling out the application to the start day that was on my offer letter would have been just about 4 weeks. It really just depends on the process of any particular employer. Both of these places were located several hours from where I was living at the time.

I sent to hospitals and rehabs, just a week ago. I'm waiting and trying to collect info for now so l can somehow plan the next step l could take while waiting. Really? Woa 6 months is a long time. Have you had experience in LTC facility?

can you tell me what state are you from? Thats a good thing you got new grad slot in a hospital. Have you tried sending resumes on rehabs or LTC facilities? Im interested to work in LTC just to start right away. Do you have idea about nursing home experience, shift and starting salary as RN new grad?

I am an oldy- moldy sharing some of my extreme experiences with the hiring process.

I actually took the offer that came 6 months later, because I was coming back from a travel assignment .

I know waiting is tough, but one week is nothing in the grand scheme of human resources. They are notorious for being slow .

There is really no other step to take ... than wait it out. Keep a record of your applications so you remember the details when you DO get a response.

Best of luck.. hope it shakes loose for you, feel free to PM me.
