I hoped to gain the experience I needed, then move back to my home state. As it turned out, I didn't get the job.
The area I live in is saturated with schools and new grads looking for work. I've all but given up looking for a job here, and am looking to move out of state, if necessary. I'm also considering some rural hospitals in state. Ideally I'd prefer a large hospital, but a rural hospital might fit the bill, as it appears this experience would be marketable enough. I worked hard for a BSN, because this is the experience I wanted, not to work in a skilled nursing facility for the rest of my life. I'm willing to go to whomever is hiring.
