Immigrant visa will take you over 6 years waiting unless your spouse is able to go for immigrant visa and then it will depend on which category they go under to how long it will take.
With current US economic situation and many nurses looking for work I think you will have a hard time finding a employer willing to go the H1b route and unless they are cap exempt then they can not apply until April with a Oct start. Only thing you can do is contact the hospitals yourself and ask them
