I am a RN , I come from a different nation, i have passed NCLEX and got the licence to practice , there are no legal obligation at all in spite of all these i am unable to find a job, i had gone through the previous topics regarding this kind of situation, I know hospitals do not want to take a chance, i have nothing to prove that i will be good for the hospital, though i passed NCLEX. I see all the job vacancies asking for a minimum one year experience, how will a fresher find a job ? can any one guide please, should i volunteer in any hospital or what kind of jobs should i look for, please please some one guide me. It is so demotivating after getting out of all the struggles i am stuck at not finding a job. It really hurts being jobless in this expensive world.

I'm in the same situation but as a CNA. I've applied at numerous hospitals and LTC in my area and nothing. I've had one interview and didn't get the position. I really need the work, even part-time, as we're living on her SSD. And I have no interest in HHC. Everyone want's 1 year experience, even LTC. How are you supposed to get the experience if you can't get hired? It's really frustrating. I'm taking Phlebotomy, hopefully to increase my desirability to employers. I live in Florida, the retirement state, in a town that is 75% retirees. I know the need is there but dang, give me a break and a chance. They might just be surprised!!

Thousands of nurses in the US are unemployed. And it makes it harder that English is not your first language and you may struggle with proficiency. I wish you luck. But don't get discouraged, it's not just you that is unemployed.
