What area do you live? Do you have an inner city area with several hospitals? I went to Detroit right after graduating and I know they are still hiring new grads... DMC with Detroit Receiving, Karmanos, Harper, Childrens; St Johns; Henry Ford. They will train you for various ICU's, ER, Med-Surg. The pay is lower but you will get a job and the experience to start. The preceptor programs were great and I wasn't left alone until I had 6 months with a preceptor behind me. I got to see so much working down there after a year I can't begin to tell you how great the experience was and I seen so much more than I would have at a local hospital (although those are also hiring new grads). Good luck and keep applying!
