In my area, there have been two rather large layoffs at our local hospital due to budget cuts and some of my nursing friends are now out of work and having a hard time finding a job. Is the medical and nursing field saturated or is it still a good field to go into?

I think that nurses are still in high demand. It seems like they will always be in demand. I hope your friends are able to find a new job quickly. It is hard being out of work in this economy.

I believe nursing is still a good field to go into but you may have to venture out of your current location to find a job. your particular area may be saturated but demand is high elsewhere. Don't be afraid to go out and look in other areas.

I always understood nursing had many avenues. It can entail private duty, different type hospitals, hospices, physician offices, etc. I would not think a nurse would have any difficulty in employment.

Yeah, I think nurses will always be in demand, but that maybe that demand is somewhere other than where you're living now. Good luck to your friends! I hope they find a new job soon.

I agree that nurses are still in high demand. However, it may be your location that is saturated. In my home city, there are two major nursing universities and many, many hospitals. So I also have seen a lot of medical layoffs.
