    Hi Deensy...congrats on passing the boards. Since you are a new nurse, I don't think you can be an "agency nurse" as that requires experience. Do what the rest of us do: visit the websites of hospitals in NJ and apply for positions there. Do you know where in NJ you will be living/working?

    Hi Jersey Girl,

    I will be living in Ridgefield,n.j,near Fort Lee!. Do you know where that is.

    Thanks so much for the reply.
    P.S Have you graduated recently? Where are you located?

    I believe that the OP is a nonUSA citizen. Therefore the agencies she is referring to are ones that handle immigrating nurses and placing them with facilities - not your standard agency.

    She may be requesting a sponsoring facility or agency - much harder to come be.

    Deensy...is that so, that you are looking for sponsorship? As for me, I live in Jackson, NJ, in the central part of the state.

    Not employed as a nurse just yet, (I work with computers) but think I'll get one offer from a hospital near me.

    What is your background, if I may ask?
