I am needing some advice from recent graduates in California. I am going to be starting nursing school (ADN) in the bay area this September, and I am wondering how the job market has been? I know it is difficult to find a job in this economy, and I was wondering what cities/towns anyone has had luck in? I do not have the option to look for jobs in other states after I graduate, but I am not tied down to any area in California in particular. If anyone can give me ideas as to where they have had success, or even where they haven't, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, is there any advice you can give me from your experience as to what I can do to make myself stand out from other applicants? I know I am 2 years away from graduating... I just love to plan .
