I am a soon to be graduate (May 2018) from an ASN program in FL. I have a bachelors in Exercise Science before attending nursing school. Currently working at a doctors office as a medical assistant.I will be relocating to the Chesapeake area at the end of May and I am starting the process of trying to get a job. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or any information about any of the hospitals in that area, including, VA beach, Norfolk, etc. I would love to start in a new grad program or an RN residency if possible but will honestly start anywhere if it is the right fit. I am not trying to be picky about the unit I start out on, as a new nurse I know any floor will have lots to learn from. I have just read that getting a job as a new grad can be kind of difficult and coming from a different state has me a little worried.
Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.
