relocating to get first RN job

  1. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts about the difficulty of finding a job after being out of school a full year, almost year and a half and getting a job in beautiful NM? I'm from CA, very tired of living here and think NM is an amazing place to live. Would this be very difficult? Thanks much,

    Any particular area of NM you are wanting to move? I am in SE NM, and there seem to be alot of home health/long term care positions available, but not many hospital jobs at all. I think it would depend alot on where exactly you plan to move, and what kind of nursing you are planning to try for.
    Sorry I couldn't be more help, but good luck whatever you decide

    Thanks for the response. I'm trying to get my acute care experience done. I eventually want to do emergency nursing. So I'm ideally looking for a hospital. I really love NM, haven't been everywhere though, but I'd be willing to move anywhere to get the experience, except across the country. I'd really like to try to stay on the CA side of the US. Thanks much,
