I am a RN w/ little over one year experience interested in moving to Hawaii.
Currently I work in a cardiac step-down at a large teaching hospital in NYC.
Some of the hospitals here have hiring freezes due to economic conditions.
As a consequent, these hospitals are only hiring internally.
I was wondering if the same is occurring in Hawaii.

Short answer: Yes. Here too. More so.
Technical answer: Experience in a semi-specialty might help you land a job. But its probably rougher here than in NY.
My aching heart answer: Most of our new grads are being voted off the island.

I am way out of touch (in more ways than one), but a friend was hired at Tripler Army Medical Center a few years ago. Not until she had one year of experience as an RN, however. Hopefully you hit the mark they are looking for.
I would go to the Federal jobs website USAJOBS
and set up a search agent for RNs, and/or "Registered Nurse". Let us know if it works!
Here's the link again:
I had a great job there a few years back. I was hired by a local temp agency. One of the best jobs I ever had. Let me know if you need a local contact for them.
