Hello, and good day. I am wondering if there is a demand for bilingual nurses in the Boston area. Someone who is fluent in English, Spanish & Italian.I am not sure whether anyone can possibly know this, but I thought I'd ask.

IMO, given the shifting demographics of the US population, there's a demand for bilingual nurses (especially English/Spanish) almost everywhere. I imagine it would be higher in suburban areas/the big cities along the East Coast.
However, in terms of job hunting prospects...being bilingual is a big plus, but keep in mind there's lots of bilingual nurses out there looking for work, so don't rely solely on your language skills to get the job.

Spanish most definitely. I have worked as a nurse in Boston for 5 years and have only had one patient who spoke Italian.
In Boston, you will find demand for people who speak: Spanish, French/Haitian Creole, Vietnamese, Cape Verdean Creole, Portuguese among other languages. Some communities in the suburbs have large Russian populations. Being multilingual can only help you!
