    I sent this message already, I am rename it to see if I can find somebody to help me. I am in NY now looking for a job, I am living in Brooklyn. Anyone has any idea where they are hiring now, I won't mind working in Queens, Bronx, Manhattan and Long Island area too. Or in Pennsylvania, somebody told me there are a lot of jobs down there. Any advice will be appreciated. I really need a job. I am an LPN.

    Don't come to Florida looking for that kind of money. BSN-prepared RN's start around here at 19/hour.

    Keenay99: go to the New York nurses section and post your question. Maybe they will have some answers for you. Have you looked on Monster.com and careerbuilder? Have you checked out all the nursing homes? Are there any health clinics in your area?

    Wow, that's nice... I can't even get an agency to give me more than $20/hr so far. My full-time job (and I will get benefits) started me at $19/hr.

    You will be hard pressed to find that kind of salary elsewhere.

    I live in NY, not in the city, but upstate and as far as I know from looking for jobs, that's the going rate in these parts. about 25-26 /hr with differentials up to 35 for overnights.

    Should be pretty easy in that area, also check into northern NJ. Go to regionalhelpwanted.com and click on your area.

    In what area is your brother working? LTC? What are the requirements for your boards. I am a Canadian, have just completed my LPN in Florida and have found I cannot write the florida boards because I do not have an american social. I can get one when I get a job..... that makes no sense, because I have to be licensed to apply for a job ????? (on a visa - changing it from school to working).
    I wish you best of luck in completing your program.
