I've been a nurse for 10 years in 4 different states, and I've been fortunate not to have had any problem ever finding a job. As an assistant manager at a rather large hospital, we always have night shift positions open, ALWAYS. Days and evenings are less common, maybe 4 positions come open a year/shift on my unit, but we hire new grads for those openings about 75% of the time. Our hospital also has a program for new grads to enter that basically fast tracks them to positions that come open. They get "hired" to a floor and work any shifts that need covered until a position comes open, and then take that position based on seniority among the new grads. I KNOW we are not innovators, so I am sure there are other hospitals across the country with programs like that. Also, I've hired nurses over the phone from as far away as Indiana, so don't get discouraged! There are lots of hospitals in the country, and plenty of them are hiring. If geography isn't a problem, you will find a job. In fact, my advice is don't be so eager for a job that you end up with a bad one that burns you out.
