From the sounds of the other replies, you shouldn't have a problem getting a job or working together. Just wanted to give my .02 of encouragement for you both being nurses. My hubby and I have so much to talk about, as he calls on local docs, etc. that I deal with daily. I feel like we have so much in common to share. And we share all of our nursing knowledge!!! Best wishes on fulfilling your dreams together!!!

My wife and I are both nurses, and one facility we worked in together would not even allow us on the same shift, even though I would not be in a position of supervising her (I am an RN, she is an LPN). They were good about coordinating our days off so that they fell together, but it is still tough when one of you works 7A-7P and the other 7P-7A. We used to joke about spending "quality time" by the med cart at shift change.
Best of luck to you both.
