I'm moving to Oahu for the 1st time on May 1st with my husband who will be stationed at Camp Smith. My mother grew up in Hawaii but I have never been. I'm hoping to connect with other nurses/spouses who might be able to tell me a little about their job hunting experience and more.
I hope to hear from you.

Quote from military spouse
hi! my hubby retired from the army about 1.5 years ago. we were never stationed in hawaii, but i was always able to find a job--even in germany. i wouldn't worry about it. i hear there is a shortage in hawaii and you can always try to work at tripler. that is one of the great things about being a nurse-you can always find a job.:spin:
i don't think tripler hires new grads. at least it doesn't look like they do:
vacancy announcement board
it might be worth a try, though--give them a call.
as far as other hospitals here hiring new grads? ime, they usually hire the locally-trained ones that have done internships with them.
queens has a new-grad program but i heard that they just instituted a hiring freeze. i know they have cancelled a few traveller assignments, too.
you can check at this site:
new grad rn program part 1
kapiolani/straub hires new grads too:
hawaii pacific health - corporate information - careers
as far as i know neither castle nor kuakini has a new grad program. probably not available at wahiawa either.
i don't know if the hawaii medical center hospitals (formerly known as st. francis liliha and st. francis west) have new-grad programs but i would avoid them.
