Does anyone have any insight as to what the job market is like for RNs in the greater Louisville area? I am about to begin an Associate's degree program in the fall, so it would be two years before I am looking. I realize that many hospitals prefer to hire BSNs, which I plan to eventually become, but for several reasons, it is better for me to go ahead and get my associate's and start working. However, I am a little concerned that I will have difficulty finding a job because of this....

As a second question, if anyone has any insight to how the market is in other areas of Kentucky compared to Louisville, that would be helpful also.

Just want to know what I am getting myself into, and I have had trouble finding recent information.

Appreciate any and all help.

Louisville has many hospitals. All of which are usually looking for LPN and RN. My mother is an RN and has never had any issues finding/keeping a position.

Southern Indiana also has a few hospitals that usually hire. Specifically Floyd Memorial which has been expanding a lot the past few years. I think you'll have no problems.
