    You still haven't found a job, wow. Have you at least gone on interviews? Im graduating on the 24th so I am really nervous I haven't heard anything back from any hospital besides Washington Hospital Center. I wont take my NCLEX till June but do you have any advice for someone just starting out?

    Have you considered public health positions? Sometimes Health Departments will hire new grads as long as they have BSNs. The pay is about the same as in the hospitals and you don't usually have to work holidays.

    Have you considered working in corrections? I just got a call from Corizon(who pretty much handles all the healthcare staffing for detention centers & prisons in this area) for an interview. It's not really my ideal place, but it's PRN position & I'm still working on my BSN, so it might work with my schedule. I saw on their website that they are looking for RN's fulltime.

    be sure & check out too, they staff a few detention centers in this area too such as the facilities in Southern Maryland, and the greater Baltimore area as well.

    Be sure & check out Mollen Immunizations Clinic too..although its a seasonal position during the flu season, they pay RN's $20/hr (and LPN's $19/hr). It's better than nothing & at least you can put it on a resume
