I'm in Jacksonville, BSN from Jacksonville University, and I've been looking for 8 months. Or, I should say, I gave up looking for work as a nurse and I'm working a full-time job and a part-time job, neither of them in healthcare.
So much for my recession-proof degree...
Since you have you BSN, have you though of joining the military? If you have been able to get part time jobs, you could join the reserves, and be elegible for Tricare Select, military insurance for reservists and guardsman. There is also Tricare dental insurance for reservists, which I have had for a long time. You can insure dependants, spouse, children, and is very affordable.
Tricare Select insurance for only the reservist, is only $47.50 a month, and the dental is about $25 a month. Again, you can insure dependants on the Tricare dental insurance as well.
Hope that helps. There are jobs in Washington State for new grads, and I have posted the information of previous threads. I don't know if you would be willing to move to Washington State. We have no state income tax here, low crime, good schools and colleges, lots of military bases, and it is a dry climate, with little humidity. I am originally from NY, and could never go back to the east coast because of the humidity.
