May 2013 is a long ways away! The economy is changing very rapidly so you never know. However, I can tell you that if you find the right connection (IE- Headhunter) you usually have a better chance. Get on linkedin and start looking for a job now! If you wait, you'll be sorry. Right now, there are mostly experienced nursing positions, not a lot of new nursing jobs. Their are a lot in Texas though!
lmsc.catsone.careers (a job board example that posts jobs in Texas specifically) but similar to this.
