    Whether or not nursing is "a good degree to get" depends on the individual. Is nursing something you want to do?? If you're not interested in being a nurse, a nursing degree would not be a good choice.

    It is true that new grads in a lot of areas are having a hard time finding jobs these days -- but that's true of every occupation, as far as I know. Have you looked at the US unemployment figures lately? That's a function of the overall current economy, not something specific to nursing.
