I am not sure about the job market, I do know there are many hospitals here I live in D.C., and I could wait and hope that I get an ICU job but I would not want to be without a job for more than six months. I am not working at the moment.

Maybe some DC area nurses could chime in here to help with how the job market really is. The amount of open positions posted does not necessarily equal the number of nurses they intend to hire. If the job market is tight, I would say start applying and accept any position that is acceptable to you. It'll mean a foot in the door and the opportunity to transition to the ICU at some point is probably easier for an internal hire than being hired into the ICU right away as a new hire.
