Dreaming of a nursing career in a warmer climate...guess what, they're hiring!
- 0Jan 14, '13 by Starfish2012It's gloomy and cold in the Northeast today. I'm about to start prereqs for nursing school and I can't wait for the day when I'm finally a nurse and can go (mostly) anywhere and have a job. (Today's CNN article aside) I just googled Key West +Nursing Jobs and found this posting:

Where I live, new grads (both ADN and BSN) are able to find jobs realtively easily, and many have jobs lined up by the time they graduate.
- 1Jan 14, '13 by saldridgeI was born and raised in K.W. it is not difficult to get a job there just keep in mind the cost of living is very expensive and you will be working just to pay rent. The school system is way behind so if you want your kids to get a good education K.W. is not the place. Good Luck don't mean to step on anyones toes just giving you a couple of facts.

The lower islands are extremely expensive, which means a long commute from affordable housing to a job in Key West (my parents lived in the Keys for a number of years).Love Key West. I want to retire there.

Some areas in Louisiana do have mild difficulty in hiring (New Orleans area may take a while, but New Orleans has struggled since the hurricanes), but further up, especially around the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas, grads are able to find jobs fairly easily.Hi x_factor, whereabouts do you live?
