I've lived in Hawaii all my life and I constantly read about the nursing shortages and what not so I've decided to pursue a career in nursing. From what I've been reading RN's should have almost no trouble at all finding a job here, but one of my good friend's relatives tells me otherwise. Apparantely she has 2 years of nursing experience, with an RN degree and she is having a hard time finding a job. I was just wondering from people aready in the field working in hospitals how true this is?

I guess I had favor on myside, I applied for job before we left the mainland the recruiter asked me to call her when I reached the island and within 2 weeks I had an interview and was am to start work.
That was Oct 2005 and I am still working in that same position.
Before coming to the island I looked at all of the hospitals website and the local newspaper and sent numerous resumes out.
The other job I was offered was at Tripler on the Oncology floor but the supervisor informed me it was hard work and I was 5 months pregnant at the time so it was not something I wanted to do.
Good Luck to those that are still lucking for empolyment.
Were you a new grad when you came here? I think the ones who are having problems are the new grads, from what I can see.
