Hi NickiLaughs! I am relocating to your neck of the woods from Minnesota and will be looking for a job in early 2021. Could you message me about a hospital that would hire a stellar candidate with an ADN?
If you’re talking about Northern California job market for new grad RNs it’s abysmal. When I relocated up here for work I had significant critical care experience (4 years) which included CRRT, post renal transplant patients and post open hearts and 5 years prior as an an LVN. This did not include my professional nursing associations and a BSN with high honors. On top of all that, I had a person I know help me get an interview for an ER job. I was able to further work myself up from there.
I currently work with a couple RNs who are still working as LVNs until they can get a job within our company and they’ve been waiting months.
I would not move to this area without at least two years experience in a sought after specialty.
Good luck to you.
