I'm a 23 year old RN-BSN working med-surg in WA with about 8 months of acute care experience right now. I was an LPN and worked in long term care as well as ambulatory care while getting my ADN and then my BSN before landing a med-surg position. My boyfriend's in the navy and is getting stationed in Kaneohe Bay in Oahu in April and I'm planning on moving there with him. By the time we move there, I will have had at least a year of acute care experience. I've been reading forums and looking on hospital websites to gauge how hard the job search is for RNs and it's sounding very difficult for new grads, but I was wondering if anyone might know how hard it would be to snag a hospital job for an RN with my background and experience? I would greatly appreciate a realistic opinion and any helpful advice from the nurses and new grads living on the islands already, mahalo!
