I'm in nursing school right now, and hopefully I graduate Dec. 2012. I have a vague idea of the job situation here, but what about when I move in with my husband? I think he'll be back stateside when I graduate (he's currently stationed at Kadena in Okinawa, Japan) to change his MOS, but is the job situation at the VA or military hospitals as bad as the rest of the country? Should I expect to wait? He's asked around, like one of the commissioned officers whose wife was a GN (actually I think she had just passed NCLEX) when she got a job at the military hospital and she's a military dependent.
I'm trying to get a realistic idea of what to do. I had originally planned to stay here an extra year and hopefully land a job so that I'd look a little better resume wise to the base hospitals, but if it's easier to get a job outside, I'll go for it. Our teachers have been telling us that with the current economy, it might be better for some of us to go into the military...I think one of us in the military is enough.
