CA resident looking for a job in NM

  1. Hi everyone.. I currently live in CA. I'm a foreign grad.. Its very hard to apply for a license here in CA if you're a foreign grad so I applied in NM and I was able to get my att and passed my NCLEX fortunately. Now, I'm considering to move there so I can practice my RN. Is it hard to find a job there?I've been working as LVN here CA for 3yrs.. So far my experience are in SNF, hospice, homehealth and Sub Acute..What's the possibility for me to get a job there? Nsg home or home health would be great but hospital job would be better.. Help pls? 😁

    Really? Can you give me a specific place? how about albuquerque?

    You have good chances in Las Cruces. Albuquerque is ok too, but I think they graduate more nurses and it is a more desirable location.

    Hi Konoha,

    I took my NCLEX on first week of August.. How about you? Is it hard to apply in NV BRN? Im planning to endorse my license there so i'll be closer here in CA..

    I took it just days ago. anyways, it was not that hard to apply in NV, they are even friendly when you call them, unlike the BON here in CA. Im not sure about the endorsement though. I've heard there's a good nursing market in NM. goodluck. keep us posted with your reciprocity application here in CAli

    CA BRN denied my application 😔

    My analyst told me that I have to apply to an accredited nursing program and it's to the school if they would credit my previous education...

    So depressing 😔

    Are u going to work in Vegas? I'm thinking to just endorse my license there so I can still stay here in CA..

    NV is not a compact state, so I think it might be harder to endorse there. YOu have to get a fingerprint card/check by the sherrifs dept, at work card, a drug card, etc... lots of hoops to jump thru. It took my daughter 5 months to get a job!
