I just read this thread about lots of new grads not being able to find work:
What is the situation here in Oregon? I live in the Portland area and am here to stay since I have a family and my husband's job is rooted here. I will not be able to able to go anywhere else for a job. The last thing I want to do is go through all of the time, effort, and investment to obtain a nursing degree and then not be able to find a job locally. One of the reasons I am interested in nursing is because of job security.
So... any of you who are new/recent grads care to fill the rest of us in on the current situation? What program did you go through and did you have a difficult time finding the employment you wanted upon graduation?
