While it is much tougher to find a job these days if nursing is the only thing you can see yourself doing then there is no choice.
By the way, anecdotal evidence in my local area leads me to believe good nursing candidates are still able to find jobs without too much difficulty. Yes, it will be hard for some people to find jobs just as it's hard for some people to get admitted into nursing school. Everyone I personally know (n=30~) that has graduated in the past year already have jobs or one lined up.
If you do your due diligence during school I think you can increase your chances DRASTICALLY of finding a job upon graduation.
Things to do:
Strive for straight-As (rationale: Having good grades will enable you to list your GPA on your resume. After you get your first job the GPA means much less, but for getting your first job it will help. Hiring managers aren't stupid, the know new grads that don't list their GPAs probably do not for a reason.)
Get to know your professors (rationale: Your professors have rapport with many of the nursing leaders in your community. The recommendation from one of these people goes a LONG way towards getting you a job. In fact many people will hire someone based solely on the recommendation from one of your professors.)
Join your student nursing association and become a leader (rationale: As an RN you are a leader. The CNA has a problem? They come to you. The LVN has a problem? They come to you. You also manage a multidisciplinary team and they all go through you. Not only does joining a professional organization show initiative but it is the stuff that managers are looking for. Quality leadership is something that is still scarce.)
Volunteer in your community (rationale: Volunteering shows that you are a real person that cares for other people. You would think going into nursing would show that, but a cursory survey of any nursing class would show otherwise. You might be the most compassionate person in the world and I commend you, but having some proof will help you land that elusive first job.)
Get a job close to your desired place of employment (rationale: Most places give preference to hiring internally before they even look at external candidates. Get a job as a CNA, patient sitter, unit secretary, etc. and work your rear end off. Don't complain about anything. Be there on time with no exceptions. These qualities are not something that show up on a resume but are very important to hiring managers. Once you get your degree they are given a choice between hiring you, the dedicated hard working person, or letting you go else where.)
Things NOT to do:
Join the C=degree camp (rationale: Stay away from anyone that heeds this methodology. This thought process is poisonous and goes against everything you should be doing.)
Think graduating and passing the NCLEX will guarantee you a job (rationale: It won't.)
If you do everything in the TODO list above I think you'll find plenty of job opportunities upon graduation. I should add, every person I know that has gotten a job very soon after graduation had at least 4/5 of the above criteria. I do not think this is a coincidence.
