    welcome !!!! I am an RN with 10 years of experience...and I think you would be an asset to any hospital in this critical time!!! First call the nearest American Red Cross and ask to get into a CPR class...then go to local nursing homes and hospitals and fill out all the applications you can..apply for Nursing assistant,lab phlebotomist,anything you can do...ususally they post jobs and thier descriptions. I would also call the Nurse recrutiers at these places and explain your dilemma. When you fill out the applications be sure to incluse a copy of your diploma...that is sure to help..best of luck to you!!!!I hope you come to love our country!!!!

    Hi Malene

    I'm a Danish nurse in the exact same situation. What did end up doing?

    Best regards,
