Kelli’s Answer

It is sometimes hard to find a job as a new graduate nurse but you can set yourself up for success. During your final rotations at school request to work in the areas and/or hospitals where you want to be employed. Use those places as resume builders. Be open to all opportunities. Once you have a year or two of experience you will never have a hard time finding a job as a nurse. There is a shortage of nurses now and it is only going to get worse over the years. That means new and young nurses will have many options.

Kelli answered this pretty well. New grads have a more difficult time than experienced nurses. That being said, those are HIGH demand areas for nursing positions and they are actively looking for employees. Get a year or two under your belt and you won't have a problem at all. What you may end up doing is a year or so on a regular floor and a year or so in the ICU and you will be extremely hirable and well suited for a high paying travel gig. Look it up and think about it. Great field to be in with a ton of jobs available pretty much everywhere, but the southwest especially
