    I saw that newscast too and just had to laugh. The vast majority of hospitals are not hiring much at all and some are shutting down altogether.

    I had my first ever interview for a GN position at a Dallas hospital on Febuary 24th. The interview was at 8:30 am and I was offered a job by 2:45 that afternoon. Maybe I just got lucky.
