    OK! THAT VIDEO IS GREAT IF YOUR A STUDENT NURSE / NEW GRAD AND HAVE NETWORKING SOURCES THRU NURSING SCHOOL CLINICALS, BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GRADUATE AND MOVE TO A NEW STATE WHERE YOU KNOW NOT ONE PERSON LET ALONE ANYONE AT A HOSPITAL WHO CAN PULL FOR YIU AS A NEW HIRE NURSE? HELP. WHAT DO WE DO?

    I’ll be moving to a different state than I did clinical in and I’ll be looking for a job there. How do I network in a state I didn’t do clinical in? How do I set myself apart aside from getting a job where I did clinical? Thanks

      My suggestion would be to VOLUNTEER (Hospitals, Clinics, Red Cross…) Anywhere where you can contribute your skills as well as continue to learn as you network within the medical environment. Also, think about picking up a few certification courses! Not only is this another way to pursue education & networking, but it’s also a great way to give a little boost to your resume! Certifications (and Re-Certs) in these areas: PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professional (PEPP), International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) , BLS/CPR , Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) etc… Great way to meet new associates while getting your name out there! Hope these suggestions help. GOOD LUCK!

    Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno Nevada has an excellent new grad education program and is actively hiring new grads. I started at this hospital as a new grad and went through the new grad residency program and I really enjoyed it. This is a large hospital licensed for 800 beds, and it is a level 2 trauma center. Reno, Nevada is a great city that has lots to offer including many outdoor and indoor activities that are suitable for those who are very active and those who are not. If you’re still looking for a job as a new grad and willing to relocate, you should check it out!
