I'm a recent RN Grad from & licensed in Mass. I want to get my first job in Oahu.
Anybody have any advice?
Is the best way to get endorsement & then apply for jobs or apply and get a temp license? Is there really a nursing shortage in Hawaii right now?
Any advice/help is very much appreciated!

No there is not nursing shortage in Hawaii. You are looking at at least a year as a nursing assistant or unit secretary at a hospital before getting a RN job. They tend to pick graduates from the islands before hiring from the mainland.
