    I would have to say, not the midwest, at least in my area!

    Florida. But wages are low, you'll be critically short staffed most of the time and technology is a century behind. Still using paper charts, cardexes etc.

    The 'Sunbelt' cities with rapidly-growing populations tend to have nursing shortages.

    Los Angeles, CA
    Las Vegas, NV
    Albuquerque, NM
    El Paso, TX
    Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
    San Francisco, CA
    San Diego, CA
    .....and many more that I cannot think of.

    I live in Dallas-Fort Worth and there are many jobs for nurses here.
