You did not say which state you were living in, not that I suppose it matters!! I have recently arrived from UK and was lucky in that I am qualified oncology nurse so was offered heaps (well 3!) clinic jobs to work administering chemo, it is the way to go m-f too. School hols will not be a prob because most places offer vacation care, have you looked into this?
Don't give up you will find something!! I felt very homesick at first it is a huge adjustment but what about giving silver chain a ring they do home visits like district nursing.
Do not go home yet!!
Hope you have some more luck, keep trying

I am now back in the NHS working a great school hour, term time only contract, and it was easy to find! I love my work here and am so pleased to be back.
Thank you for all your replies.x
