I've scanned a few posts and it seems like things are tough in Portland for new grads. My husband grew up in Portland and has been talking about moving back after I graduate in September. We're currently in Philadelphia, and things are tough here as well, so I'm planning to have a hard time finding a job no matter what, but I guess I want a sense of just exactly how bad the outlook is right now. I'd like a job in a hospital doing med surg (although emergency would be my dream job) but I'm realistic and would look at just about anything. No preference in shift (happy to work nights, weekends, etc) and I'm going to have a BSN.
I'm watching this post too http://allnurses.com/graduate-nurse-...ms-379693.html
but just wanted to see if anyone else had any recent experiences or input that could give me a sense of how things are.
