Sadieanne7, I am in the same boat as you. I moved to NJ from VA due to my husband's job. It took 6 weeks for the state to process my license but I have been applying for jobs since June. I was told that hospitals are only hiring new grads. I'm looking into agency nursing right now because I've been filling out each hospital's online applications and not getting any call backs. Have you tried Indeed.com? I set up a job search and get daily emails and spend a few hours a day applying. I worked med/surg in DC and VA and there was never a shortage of med/surg jobs there. I'm finding that there are many openings for Tele and Peds but I am not ACLS certified or have any peds experience. I'm hoping the market will turn around but it is very discouraging. All the best.
