Is it safe to quit a healthcare job and expect to be hired somewhere else during this economic crisis?

Such healthcare jobs like nurses, techs, aids, clerks, billing, coding. I am disliking my job and the people I work with and want to look for a better job but I don't know if its a good time to quit and try to find another job with this economy.
