CFY applications

I will graduate in December, and I plan to work in a SNF. I have been tracking job postings in order to learn more about job trends. But my big question is... When do I begin applying to CFY job openings? 3 months before graduation? 1 month before graduation? after graduation? thanks!

Also... I have read everything from $25-$45/hour for a starting salary in SNF. is there really that much of a spread? i'd like to start out at $32/hour and i'm open to working in VA, TN, SC, NC, and PA. will it be difficult to find a SNF at $32/hour? thanks!
