Hi, not sure where you live, but in CA it's difficult for new grads to get a job. I've seen a lot of new grads being hired as CNAs, which is so sad to me. Work as one in school yes, but as a new grad? That would be horrible IMO. My suggestion is to get a job now at the hospital you want to work at and hope they hire you on. If you want to travel, you need minimum 1 year experience, but better to have 2 years b/c as a traveler you are expected to know your stuff. After 1 year as a nurse, that may be difficult.
