New RNs can apply for any nursing job that does not exclude new graduates, but new graduates can typically find jobs through university or healthcare organizations that have new graduate hiring programs in place, according to the Sutter Health and UC San Diego Health websites. Some new grad programs only take place during certain times of the year, so graduates should review and follow the application instructions outlined in the program.
Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region offers an RN New Graduate program called RN Strong, states the website. RN Strong is a training program for new graduates to prepare them for work in the nursing field.
UC San Diego Health also offers new graduate programs in a number of specialty areas, and these are typically offered in January, April, July and October, according to the website.
