Nursing Jobs Paducah

How is the job market for RNs (new grads) in the Paducah area? What is the average starting rate?

I may be relocating from CA and I'm basically a new grad (8 months experience as a break nurse). Looking online at websites that give salary information and at hospital's job postings isn't always helpful.

Thank you!

Just an update in case anyone else is looking...

It is very easy to find a job. The pay isn't great (but I am coming from CA). The pay actually did improve after a few months due to hospital wide raises. The patient ratios are pretty awful. I work in a critical care unit and regularly take 3 patients. I have had 7 patients in med-surg and 6 patients in cardiac step down unit.
