    Hi !! I live near Knoxville Tn.& I can certainly say that we DO NOT have a nursing shortage here. I am an RN & I have been out of work for almost 6 months. I wish that I had went to college for something other than nursing, it totally sucks!! Thinking of going back to school......

    Hi, I'm from Edmonton and if you were looking for an actual job, there is this nursing home that is looking for a nurse. I have not started studying to become a nurse but was just looking for a part time job. Mark

    Also, if you want to travel, Volunteer International Christian Services send nurses overseas. You have to go for 2 years though.

    Las Vegas has huge shortages in all medical fields.
    The entire state is short.
    Also, there are teaching opportunites at the nursing schools. My school is considering BSNs that are working on their MSNs. That's how short they are.

    Minnesota?? I know RN's forced to stay in LPN positions (some are on this BB) because they can't find fulltime RN jobs.

    I agree with Cheerfuldoer's and Haunted's opinions on this subject.
