My name is B and I was let go from my job in October. I have been a nurse for 11 years now in that same system. Previous work has been in IMCU 8 years, ICU 1 year, and PACU 2 years. I have been applying to jobs in thesame area. I like working where the patients are monitored. I do not want to go back to ICU. It was emotionally exhausting for me. I am bilingual in Spanish and am available to work ASAP. I have put in applications and resumes. I have only received one letter of regret. When I called to talk to HR about a house managementposition, I was told that in needed managerial experience for that. My questionis that in all my previous jobs I have known someone that has worked in the department. What can I do to speed up the process? It has been 4 weeks since I have sent resumes for specific jobs. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am starting to feelworthless and anxious.

Some thoughts: (1) what is a "letter of regret" ? (2) why were you terminated ? (3) from your name, I'm assuming you work in Indiana; are you living in a town that's controlled by one hospital system ? When you can't find a position in your local area, or you're dependent on "knowing someone", my advice would be to move. There are many places that have a huge need for nurses; don't be afraid to leave your current town and move on.

As previously suggested. when you have seemingly exhausted availabilities in your present area, find a job elsewhere. When I couldn't find work where I wanted to continue living, I left for a large urban area on the other end of the state and landed two full time jobs immediately. Pack up the car and go.
