Pretty sure if you want to work in that feild with that much acute care expirince you can apply to any major city. I've been struggling in Seattle since being laid off from an LTC managment position but if my expirience was in acute care over LTC care it would count to hospitals. I know Nothwest Hospital, Swedish (three facilites) Hospitals, Providence Hospital, Overlake Hospital, Evergreen Hospital, Highline Hospital, Group Health Clinics, Multicare Hospital, Good Sameritan Hospital, Fransiscan Hospital, Childrens Hospital, Virgina Mason Hospital, University of Washington Hospital, Harborview Hospital, Tacoma General Hospital, and Steven's Hospital are all hiring RN's with one to two year expirience but that has to be acute care expirience. One peice of advise though if you work north or south of seattle on I-5 at some of these not located in Seattle proper you should live there too. Rush hour drives can escalate to many times the amount of time to drive them 2hours is not unheard of if you don't live close to work and living expences like rent are high. Expect to pay 1,000 at the least for a one bedroom apartment without utilities being included.
