Thank you both very much for the leads.

Where are you living now?
I live near Philadelphia, PA. Area seems to be on a complete freeze right now, and since I went to a nontraditional school, I didn't make the contacts in the local hospitals that might have helped me. I would probably be able to get a job at HUP (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania) because I worked there for a number of years as a hyperbaric tech, but they only hire BSN-prepared nurses according to HR. Le sigh.
However, I can't complain, because I have the flexibility to go wherever I need to, and hopefully there are jobs somewhere.
I will run down the information you've given me. I hope you wouldn't mind additional PMs or questions after I do some of my homework. If anyone else has any other suggestions, I would still love to hear them. Thanks very much.
