Hi everyone! My boyfriend and I plan to move to Oahu after I graduate from nursing school next year (I will be graduating with a BSN). We do plan to live there long-term! I have heard that it is very difficult for new grad nurses to find jobs there and I was just wondering if anyone had any tips or additional information! Anything would be helpful!

I used to live in Oahu and your best bet is to become a CNA or volunteer at your hospital of choosing.  I had a few friends who went through the nursing program there and had paid to get professional resumes done and some of them were able to land jobs.  I also have a friend who works as a home health nurse but is not making nearly as much as they could.  Best bet is to apply but prepare to spend at least a year of CNA/volunteer work.

To further back up what Nurse2417 said this is exactly what was told to a group of graduating nurses last year at my school HPU. I was shocked, to say the least. I would not be able to repay any loan on the amount a CNA makes and would probably make more money serving chili at Zippy's.
