    Not to rain on your parade, but the over supply is so bad now that often every new grad position in Cali gets 200 applicants. And most other states are just as bad. I have head North Dakota is looking for nurses though so you might try that.
    I would like to correct you on your applicant numbers for CA, you're missing a zero, lol.

    No, but seriously, I know what you're talking about. I have a few USA nursing friends now and they tell me of how hospitals and even medium size ones are getting over 1,000 applicants on average, some less around 600-800 for only a few openings. UCLA had something like over 3,000. San Diego hospitals getting over 1,000 applicants. Many of the on-line applications are shutting down after reaching a few hundred, some closing the application process mid-way as the computer system gets overloaded and we're talking about open to apply for only a few hours!

    One is employed with the big LA hospital I mentioned, a couple of others in LA too but different hospitals and it took them almost a year, but many of their friends are still looking, so sad.

    It used to be no matter how bad your work history you could easily get a job there. The over supply thing is just evil greediness by schools and corporations.

    Good luck to you guys though. I certainly understand wanting to be able to make a decent living for yourselves and your families.

    It's not even until 2020. The US has caught up with its RN "shortage", there will be plenty to meet the demand and some. More like for good.

    "Evil greediness"? There is great demand for admission to nursing schools in the US by many people who want "to be able to make a decent living for (them)selves and (their) families," same as all the people in the PI studying nursing with the intent of working in another country. Why is it "evil greediness" for schools to attempt to meet that demand? For many years, the state governments pushed the state BONs to find ways to increase the number of nursing school seats available, by allowing existing school to increase the number of students they could accommodate, and allowing new schools to open, because the state governments were hearing from so many people about how they wanted so much to become nurses and they couldn't get into a school. There was also a perceived shortage at that time. People here also want to be able to make a decent living for themselves and their famililes. Is there something wrong with that?
