With plenty of persistence, you might have a chance at a LTC job in the DFW area. My idea of persistence involves going to every facility within a 50 mile radius to submit your application and resume in person, even if the place does not have an advertisement for nurses. Persistence also involves following up with every application within a week.
I first moved to the DFW area in 2005, and all of the facilities were begging for nurses back then. Now, the tides have changed due to the sluggish economy, so it is considerably harder to land employment. Good luck to you!
