When to start applying for jobs when relocating?

  1. Hello,
    I am planning a move to a new state (TX to CO) in July. I'm an experienced psychiatric/med-surg RN who has worked multiple units. I was wondering when I could begin applying to jobs ahead of my move? A few months? A few weeks?

    Any insight is appreciated!

    6-8 weeks may be the best time frame. If you want to start employment immediately and have a definitive date I would say that should cover you. You would have plenty of time to apply, hear back, interview, possibly be offered, and work a notice. Since most nurses have to give a 4 week notice, I think 6-8 weeks should be plenty ahead.
