Los Angeles area job prospects

    What does the job market look like, generally speaking, for an associate degree nurse in the Los Angeles area? I'm not a new grad, but I only have two years experience (in critical care). Can anyone give me an idea?

    I moved to the area with two years of experience and an ADN. The suburban hospitals didn't seem to be hiring much, but I did get some calls when I started looking closer to downtown. The job I was offered required two years of recent acute care experience as a minimum.

    Do you speak Spanish? That is the single largest contributing factor to your finding employment as a nurse in L.A. If you don't, get on it. At the very least, sign up for a medical Spanish class somewhere and buy Rosetta Stone or Pimseler, and put on your résumé that you are in the process of learning Spanish. That will help.

    Great, thanks for the tips. I made sure to add Spanish to my cover letter, so it's not totally buried at the bottom of my resume.
