Just wanted to do a pulse check on how things are in Denver for the job market with newer nurses - is it still really competitive?

it sure was 2 years ago, but as soon as you get some experience it gets easier.

As a recent grad from MSU's accelerated program I can say that I haven't heard anyone from my cohort complain of troubles. Most got specialties they were seeking, and some even had offers from multiple competitive nurse residencies.

It's unfortunate that there is so much bias indicating that CU and Regis have better programs (and smarter students, as one recruiter mistakenly indicated to me during an interview). I chose metro purposefully because I wanted an accelerated program that was longer than 12 months (that seemed crazy to me and I have kiddos).

Sorry to have soap-boxed off topic there! Still a little bitter from the convo with a recruiter...
