    Job market for new grads in Oregon

    I'm an Oregonian born and raised (Corvallis area), but I'm in Omaha, NE for a year in nursing school. When I graduate with a BSN this August, I really want to come home and be closer to family and my boyfriend but the job market makes me nervous and I was hoping someone could give me advice. Should I go back to Oregon and just hold out until I find a job even though I have massive student debt that I would like to start paying off? Or would it be smarter to stay in Nebraska for another year to get experience where there are lots of jobs, but where I don't really have any support system or other reason to stay? If it makes a difference, I'm pretty open to any nursing job, including LTC if it means being in Oregon. Thank you for any input you have

    There will be a Facebook group when it gets closer (the advisor will email you a link) and you will be able to find someone to connect with :)

    Walla Walla University Nursing Program

    You should move this to Washington and maybe you'll get a response :)

    Creighton Accelerated BSN - acceptance GPA?

    Are either of you just ridiculously nervous about nursing school?

    Creighton Accelerated BSN - acceptance GPA?

    Yep, I paid my deposit and declined SU so I'm officially going to Creighton! I already have a Blue Jays travel mug to prove it :) To be honest I know nothing about Omaha either! Except that it's much cheaper than Seattle and the people are supposedly really nice :)

    I didn't know they give you the option of coming home for the preceptorship! That's awesome, I definitely want to do that.

    Creighton Accelerated BSN - acceptance GPA?

    It was a really hard decision but two big reasons for me were the length of the programs and the cost, since both schools have good reputations and I know I would get a good nursing education from either. I applied as a transfer student at SU, so that would have been a 2 year program whereas I'll be done in 1 year at Creighton. That's important to me; I really enjoy school but I'm about ready to get started with a career. Plus there's the fact that it's going to be really difficult for me to be away from my family and my significant other for even one year. Also, even though SU offered me a good scholarship, tuition would still have ended up costing me much more. Plus Seattle has a very high cost of living and Omaha doesn't. I've always liked the idea of living in Seattle (or Bend, I'm jealous that you live there) but I think it would be better to wait until I'm earning a decent income before living somewhere so expensive. I don't know about you but I have quite a bit of debt already from my first BS. I have a cousin who did the ABSN program at Creighton and had a good experience, which is why I applied and why I feel really good about my decision. She's now an RN in Lincoln City and she loves it :) What other schools are you considering?

    Ok. Well it sounds like you should be fine for the Creighton prereqs. I hope it all works out! Especially because I would really appreciate having another Beaver to talk to in Omaha :)

    I didn't have any issues but I only applied to Creighton and Seattle University. Did you take all 3 terms of A&P and both the lecture and lab for microbio?

    That's great! We definitely should if you decide to go to Creighton!

    Creighton ABSN Fall 2015

    Is anyone going to be starting the ABSN program at Creighton in August? I'm moving to Omaha from out of state this summer and I'm getting really nervous about it, I am hoping I can meet some people in the same program before I get there.

    I graduated from Oregon State last June! I still live in Corvallis too. I haven't really looked for housing yet since I don't know who I'm going to live with. Let me know if you end up going to Creighton! It would be awesome to meet someone in the same program before I move out there
