Where to Find Your First Job After Leaving Nursing School

List: Posted: 10/06/11

If you have just graduated from nursing school, congratulations are in order.  However, you now face the task of finding a job.  Where do you turn?  What are your options?  How do you find a job now that you have graduated?


First, finding a job in nursing is not that hard, as it is one of the most in-demand professions out there right now.  However, you do need to have a little bit of patience.  You should plan for a few things, such as working hours that are not ideal, having to relocate and starting out at the bottom of the ladder.


Next, you need to know where to find a nursing job in your area.  There are several places that you can apply.  Local hospitals are a logical place to look for a job.  However, don't neglect area doctor offices.  You can also find a job working at the local health clinic, or by applying with a nursing care facility.  Retirement communities also have frequent job openings for nursing professionals.


You can also consider working with a nurse staffing agency.  These are temporary agencies that specialize in helping medical provider fill their needs.  Travel nursing is another option, and it can be very lucrative.  However, for those who want to stay in the same job for several years, then travel nursing is probably not a good idea.


With a little patience and being open to different job opportunities, you can find a lucrative, rewarding career in nursing.
