I have Arizona RN license 2 months ago. I have been applied for more than 70 jobs in AZ, but I have not been considered for any positions
. I had 2 years ER experience and two years EENT out patient experince from my country in Southeast Asia. I 've lived in phoenix,AZ for 1.6 years. I really need a job
. I would like to know if there any hospital in the valley willing to hire foreign nurses. What should I do to get a job??? I am looking for OR and PACU position. IF I can not find any job, Do you think should I work as LPN????? Please give me suggestions, any advice from all of you will be helpful for me. Thank you.
Quote from NP Gilly
I think the reason why you have not found a job is not the fact that you are foreign since you obviously have the legal authorization to work here. Unfortunately, jobs are becoming harder to come by even for nurses who are US citizens and legal US residents in some metro areas. Maybe look into areas where most nurses wouldn't dream of applying to such as long-term care, out-patient clinics, home care, etc. In this economy, I would rather take on any job than not having a job at all. Hopefully when things change, the job openings you prefer will be available.
Thanks NP Gilly, I am now looking for any job that I could possibly get. I am little upset to be " Ms. Not selected." for many many positions I have applied for. BTW, I also want to work in the doctor's office , but I have never seen them online. Where can I find them? please
