Can any of you nice folks from the Monterey Peninsula give me some idea of what the job market is like there for RN's? I'm coming up on a year of acute-care med-surg experience in Texas. I used to live in Pacific Grove and have been dying to get back to the area. Just want to know what my chances are of finding work, preferably a staff position in Monterey or Salinas.

Any info, tips, suggestions are most appreciated!

When I lived there the job market was dismal. That is why I had to leave. I've seen no evidence to prove that the job market has ever changed for the better. Because I love the area, I plan to move back when I become independently wealthy again.

Well, that's a drag.

I think there is genuine need for nurses in the area and I do see several openings but they are often per-diem. There seems to be better opportunities as a travel nurse. I don't understand why those positions seem easier to obtain.

I had a phone interview for an L&D job. Hoping to hear if I get the next interview. Fingers crossed!! Just received all my info to start the CA license process but from reading the other posts, it seems rather daunting....
