    I don't even think the market is that tight (for experienced RNs). I've applied at a few positions lately and have received offers each and every time. One time, I had an interview and offer within one week of application.

    I am having trouble finding an RN job as well, with over a year of experience! I am not familiar with Seattle, but I do know that many of the hospitals here have new grad residency programs. Check out the following places for residencies. This would be a great opportunity for you.

    Multicare.org
    Harrison Medical Center (Bremerton)
    NWHospital.org

    If you want to get ahead, apply for CNA/Nurse Tech positions and work a little while in school. It helped me SO much when I graduated.. I wasn't so "new" to nursing. Some facilities do not require you to have a CNA license.

    Good luck!
