    This bill is about to be passed so all of you military spouses out in Hawaii have no fear, you soon will be able to go to KCC or wherever you'd like!!

    I am trying to decide between KCC and UHM.
    I keep hearing that there is a "nursing surplus" on the island.
    Have you all found jobs from getting the Associate's degree from KCC,
    or BSN from UH for that matter??

    I feel worried about everyone's warnings about the "surplus" of nurses
    and lack of jobs, so I wanted to ask you all if you agree with that.

    UHM. The ADN is not a marketable degree in Hawaii because the hospitals are moving toward the BSN as the entry/desired degree. So you're better off going to UH or HPU.
