saw this topic in '09...what about today? my partner just passed,and I am looking to move out of Northern CA,to a state that is hiring new grads,and states,hospitals that you know of? Thanks
Every state is hiring new grads, but it may take some time to find a job. Do not relocate until you get a job. If you are willing to go anywhere apply everywhere until you get something. apply everywhere and see what you get
I've just been hired in South Dakota...

Alabama is a good state for new grads, I just moved from there. So sorry about your loss.
Geeze you probably meant passed NCLEX... Taking this as a sign to go to bed!!

It's ok, thought the same thing too
Depending on where you are in northern CA, you may be able to find work just as well as anywhere else. Rural areas are generally a good bet, and I would have to imagine that staying clear of towns like Chico, Sac, Santa Rosa, etc. where there are RN programs would help. If you have a BSN, Humboldt County might not be bad, but I know College of the Redwoods still has an ADN program (HSU did away with their BSN program a couple of years ago). It's really a matter of what you're open to and what you're looking for. If you're open to a rural area for awhile, you could easily stay in CA. Do a Google search, submit as many apps online as possible, and plan on a road trip for interviews. Good luck with your search!
