New RN look for a job

  1. Hello
    I 'm so happy to scream of the top of my lung about I passed NCLEX test with CA board.It was my 1st time for NCLEX and I took only 75 questions:hatparty:
    how cool is that!I cried and shook very bad when I found my license on my mail and my engrave certificated from CA
    I'm transfering my license from CA to MO and expect job in a couple weeks from now on.
    Anybody have idea where should I apply job at ? I never been trained in USA before but graduated 2001 from Thailand and worked as OPD clinic nurs for years.
    If you know how much do they pay for new RN please leave me a message for me
    Thank you

    Best way to begin is to look at the newspaper in your area where you will be living. It will give you some initial idea of what the hospitals are offering. Also what type of area are you interested in, still OPD or willing to try a different area.
    Is MO letting you transfer without taking CGFNS?
    Take a look and let me know what you find, and then I will tell you the next step to follow. You can also probably look up the newspaper on the internet if you are still in California. Much also depends on which city that you will be living in. Let me know and perhaps I can make a few suggestions to you.

    Again, congratulations!!!!!

    Do you have copy of your transcripts and a listing of what each class included? They will require a copy since you are foreign educated.

    Again, good luck....................

    I called MO board of RN.They have told me ,I don't have to take english or CGFNS because I already passed my NCLEX test with CA board .They have info on internet about endorsement license across the state .I 'm scheduled for CGFNS this July and I think I might make it this time.I'm working as CNA at MVC(Missouri Veteran Care ) It's belong to the goverment .I started this job about 2 weeks now.I think this Monday I will meet my DON and tell her about my situation.If she have position for me then I will ask her for shadowing job on my day off.I think this is big step for me .I never had any experience in United state before so I think I 'm going to be very stress.
    I already got job offer from Nursing home in Missouri ,but I 'd rather work at the hospital .
    I just need to refresh my knowledge ,and be more careful about my practice also.
    It will take another 2-3 weeks to get interim permit in MO and I will let you know how is go.
