My husband and I will be relocating to Spokane next summer after he retires from the Air Force and I complete RN school. I haven't lived in Washington since I was a younger, so we are moving home for me and away from North Texas. I am wondering with all of the nursing schools in Spokane how difficult is it to find nursing jobs in the Spokane area? I am also a AF Veteran, so I was going to check with the VA there. Any thoughts?

I dont know about the VA but SHMC and Providence has been reducing staff. Check out DMC, they might be hiring since Rockwood Clinic was recently purchased by CHS.

People are mentioning the hospitals, but long term care is growing. They can't build skilled nursing facilities fast enough to accomodate the number of Boomers that are going to be needing those facilities in a few years. I'd check into places like Extendicare, Lifecare, and every other LTC/SNF facility in Spokane. Spokane is a popular place to retire and I can guarantee you there will be new long term care facilities that will have just opened up by the time you get to Spokane in six months. Good luck!

I agree with Jobseeker -
I am also an RN, and (not to burst your bubble) job seeking in Spokane hospitals has been bad, bad, bad for years - even before the economy turned down. You might find something if you are lucky, but I wouldn't bank on it.
The good news is that Spokane is where a lot of Seattle folk go to retire, so there is work in out-patient elderly care and dialysis. Think adult family home, rehab, and clinics.
The other good news is that you will have your AF pensions, so maybe you will not even need to work if you can manage things right.
