First of all, I am so excited to find allnurses.com. What a fabulous way to get connected with the issues. I am a new grad from University of Manitoba in Canada (BN - equivalent to BSN). I recently moved to Gresham/Portland area as my husband is attending Chiropractic College. I am hearing some nightmare stories about new grads finding jobs out here
. Any advice would be so greatly appreciated!
I am wondering whether I should first write my NCLEX (I have passed the Canadian exams) or find a job before writing?? Does anybody know of even a rural area in Oregon that is hiring new grads?? I am willing to move anywhere in Oregon or Washington. I am also willing to work in clinics, geriatric homes, whatever is available. I enjoyed most of my rotations so that is not an issue.
I love nursing and am hoping I can stay in the same location as my new husband! Any advice?
THANK-YOU SO MUCH!
