RN new to Tucson and looking for a job

  1. 0 Hi! I am new to Tucson, moved here 4 months ago from Canada. I worked as a RN in my home country for 3 yrs and 6 mos on the medical/surgical unit until 2008 when I moved to Canada for a LPN job on the Geriatrics Department. Now fate brought me to Tucson. So I have been applying for a RN position related to the work experience I had for the past years and mostly the employers here say that I need a recent experience in the US as a RN with a minimum of 6 months. Forgive me if I sound like I'm complaining but how can I get the said bedside experience if they won't even give me a chance? It is frustrating. With that being said, I know my chances of getting a hospital job is far from reality right now but where do I apply for a RN position where they will gladly take me in? Can somebody please give me ideas? I badly need to start my RN experience here rolling but where do I start? Will I even have the slightest chance on getting a nursing home, hospice, respite facilities or home care job? I hope it gets me somewhere... It's really disappointing. Suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
