    I am not too familiar with that area but look around online I have seen so many postings I am sure there is something great for you in your area. I like simply hired, careerbuilder, etc. Good luck!!!!!

    Try Whittier Rehab Hospital in Bradford or Westborough. They hire new grads and are currently hiring nurses! Pay is not as good as Boston but still competitive. Benefits are good and ratios are pretty good (5-6 on days, 6-8 on evenings and 8-9 on nights).

    Thanks everyone for all your replies, I can't believe I got more responses here than facilities and let me tell you I applied to over 100+ jobs. I've heard from friends that most online Nursing posting aren't even real positions. They don't even bother looking at the posting. Even places like Lawrence General Hospital had a pop-up saying "Please stop sending applications, you have exceeding the number of applications" lol isn't that funny but thanks again everyone!

    Have you looked into psych nursing? There are usu jobs available, as it is a "less desirable" field for many nurses (I work in psych so this is not true for everyone!!). Even if you dont want to stay in psych, you could get your foot in the door in a hospital and get exp. with meds, etc. Try the Steward (St Elizabeths) system-- last I checked they had psych positions. Also, Cambridge health alliance (altho they don't take new nurses unless you have your BSN-not sure if you do). You could also try the Leland unit (psych) at Beverly Hospital, NSMC Salem and Union Hospital, Melrose Wakefield's psych unit (med 6) is hiring per their website--they took me as an RN with no hospital experience per diem after I had exp. at an unlocked psych stepdown unit (not in a hospital). Also, CCS's (psych step down, unlocked units) usu hire new grads (this was my first RN job) -- there are units at Baycove/BMC, Northeast Beh. health-salem, Elliot Human Services (Lynn I think?).

    Also try the Kindred system (LTAC/SNF). You can google "nursing homes" in your area and it will pull up some that dont post on the major websites (monster, indeed, etc)-- they may have openings on their websites-- and some might not even have websites, so you could call. And try craigslist and Good luck!!!
