I was stationed in Oahu for a year and I promised myself that eventually I would move back. I've researched the islands and it appears that the Big Island is a little less expensive than the others. I will graduate next summer as an LPN, but also know that I want to go on for my RN almost immediately. I'm wondering what the job market is like for LPN's on the big island. Is there much work? If so, are the wages adequate to pay the bills and buy food? I'm contemplating on waiting to move there til I get my RN, but I'm a girl with little patience as well! Would it be better to wait til I have my RN? Thanks to all who answer!
