I know this area, esp N.O. is still recovering from Katrina, so I'm aware the job market for nurses is very necessary. But I have been hearing alot of mixed signals about relocating. Some say that there are plenty of opportunities with high pay, then there are some who say that there aren't many jobs or the cost of living trumps any salary.
Personally, I feel that in this point of my life I'm young and able to go anywhere with a nursing degree and make the most of any experience. I would LOVE to relocate back to my hometown, but I feel uneasy.
So can anyone offer their overall opinion of the job outlook for new graduates in New Orleans? Any knowledge of new grad programs? Any advice or comments are very appreciated!!
