    I moved back here from CA in November and got a job on my first day - ok, it was a crummy place to work but it allowed me to get my foot in the door. I think you do have more of a chance here if you are a new grad. Some of the LTC facilities are fairly good places to work. Also, there's an alcohol/drug rehab facility that routinely hires new grads. And there's always corrections. I now work as a travel nurse, having only 7 months of experience. It is a little tough on me, not the driving so much as not having guaranteed hours. But the pay is terrific.
    Employers want to know that you're serious about coming here, so if you are the best thing to do (IMO) is endorse your license over, which doesn't take long. Financially, it wasn't possible for me to come here just to interview. I had to come here to stay.
    I wish you the best. Vermont is my home, so it wasn't a hard choice to come back. I'm so glad I did.

    Wow, Abbyann, you sound like me! I am a Vermonter too, and I have been living in Washington state waiting to get back home. Did you ever make it?
