Getting an NP job as a new grad was challenging. It felt like being a new grad RN again except with more intense panel interviews. Over the years working with student nurses I have told them they may need to move to get a job and experience. Well now it is my turn, and the hard part will be moving. I have lived in this place for 5-years and really like it, but the job and experience I want is too far away. The San Francisco bay area is a great place that pays well, and that means NPs and RNs with experience come from around the country to work here. Someday I will be that experienced NP taking away a job from a new grad. Not because it was planned, but because I was on that path.
