[font="comic sans ms"]another post agreeing that you shouldn't expect to travel as a new grad! get some solid experience before attempting to travel. if it takes you more than a year or two to get good experience in the specialty of your choice, then it's time well spent.
while my opinion of new grads in icu and er is that they need to get some med-surg experience first
, if you want to travel as an icu nurse or an er nurse, take the time to get some good icu or er experience. a large, teahing hospital will offer good orientation and good experience. if you want to travel as an icu nurse, and the only icu experience you have is in a small community hospital that sends all of its sick patients to the city hospital, you're going to be in way over your head!
if your major objective is to travel, just get some good med-surg experience and travel as a floor nurse. but nothing says your first staff nurse job has to be near home -- if you really want to travel, go to some city you've always been fascinated by and get a staff nurse job there to get your two years or so of staff nurse experience! i went to boston early in my career and loved it! (not the job so much, but the city.) it was 1000 miles away from home, and everything was different -- the food, the culture, the climate.
get some med-surg experience on the east coast, then move to the west coast to get icu or er experience. or move from the northwest to the southeast, or from chicago to new york, or whatever interest you. just because you aren't ready to travel yet doesn't mean you can't move every couple of years!
good luck in your new career.
