5 Best States for Nursing Jobs

5 Best States for Nursing Jobs

NursingLink.com and Careervoyages.gov

California

The Golden State may be sunny in disposition, but its number of employed nurses is bleak. There is an estimated need for 291,200 RNs, 64,800 LPN / LVNs and 83,600 CNAs ending in the year 2016. That is a total of 439,600 available nursing-related jobs in California.

This is especially true in the field of geriatric nursing. As the Baby Boomers age and need more medical care, the demand for nursing dramatically increases.

To help alleviate California’s dire nursing shortage, California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the California Nurse Education Initiative which provides $90 Million over 5 Years through a public-private partnership to reduce California’s nursing shortage.

“Nurses are people of compassion and courage. Their profession is a labor of love and without them we simply could not deliver quality care for patients. California is facing a severe nursing shortage and it is absolutely critical that we open up the nursing profession to everyone who has the passion and potential,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “With this new Initiative we are going to improve the quality of health care everywhere in our state. We are going to provide more classes, more teachers and more resources to expand the ranks of nurses in California.”

    Actually there aren't really any jobs for new graduate nurses in California, that's why I volunteered for Connecticut drug rehabilitation after I graduated. Also, most of the new grad programs are "postponed until further notice" and thousands of new grads are applying for the same few new grad positions at hospitals. The situation can get pretty frustrating and if I could move out of state I would.

    I agree with others.... where are these nursing jobs. They obviously did not ask any of the RN's or LPN's who are looking for work. I live in southeast Ohio and the jobs are few and far between. It took me almost a year to get a job as an LPN and that was only PRN. I am almost done with RN school and the job market is no better. I have friends who have graduated with a BSN and have been looking for 6 months plus.

    A few months back I checked this list of yours and I must say it helped me a lot! I found a job at one of those community rehab programs and now I am a full time nurse there. Now I am looking for something to do in my spare time and I have come to check this post again for help.

    I found a job in California at an drug treatment center and I am really happy about it. I do what I love and I take care of patients that cannot take care of themselves! It is really hard to work with people with drug addiction problems because you see how they destroy their lives for just another dose. Centers like these should be opened in more states nowadays!

    I know what you mean by that but just think about it : non American citizens = low paid work force. I even took an Osha 10 Hour Training course as a nurse, just maybe someone will look at my CV and hire me but until this moment no answer. Until someone will contact me I'll work a clerk because I finished a nursing school to sell books.

    I don't know what they mean by California having alot of nursing openings - I'm an RN with a Bachelor's degree and over 20 years experience and I can't find a job. True my background isn't perfect, but I've help many responsible, clinical positions within California and I rarely even get an interview let alone a job. It's unthinkable this should be happening especially when hospitals are hiring noncitizen nurses here on work visas but won't make every effort to hire our own RN's educated, paying taxes in THIS country.

    I live in Jersey and graduated in January. Took my NCLEX-RN on March 2, 2011. I start looking for work this week and I have been told by many of the hospitals that they receive so many application for RN position that it is recommended to visit the hospitals at least once a month (to complete an application) in order to keep you resume on top of the pile. I guess I won't be getting a job any time soon. I'll trust in GOD that he will open one of those doors for me. Meanwhile, I'll volunteer with a rescue squad or something like that to halfway keep my skills up.
