Job market for RNs with 1-2 years exp?

  1. I am planning to start looking for a new job soon and I'm wondering how hard it is for nurses with 1-2 years experience in Chicago? It took me over a year to find my first nursing job and I'm wondering if it will be any easier the second time around? Or is it just as hard? I don't want to go through that again, but I'm pretty unhappy at my current job and can't wait to get out. I am currently a full-time staff RN on a labor and delivery unit with a BSN. I am not limiting my search to traditional bedside positions. In fact, I may even prefer something in the community, even if it's less money that I am currently making. I will look for both full and part time positions in women's health in either the hospital or community setting. Thanks in advance!

    With experience and BSN, no trouble at all, although it will be pm's or nights.
