I recently passed NCLEX and I am looking for the best way to start my career path.

I live in a small town that only has one hospital, few clinics, dozens of hospice care and enormous number of Nursing Home or Senior Living.

A little background....

I graduated 10 years ago and the last practice was hospital experience for 6 months in 2013 and was working in 2010-2011 in a Free Standing Dialysis Center.

Back in school, our program was straight to the BSN program in 4 years with 3 years of summer classes and 10 straight months of school(in 4 yrs).We had OR-DR exposure, Pedia, Elderly, Community and Psyche Nursing.A year after graduation I took the board and passed it the first time in our country.

Any help or advise please from the expert. I am a foreign graduate and I know there is a reason why I passed NCLEX the 1st time without enrolling in a NCLEX Review Program.

If you may share your personal experience, it will help me a lot.

Especially how you manage to start and survive the grueling first few months as a novice nurse.

Thank you so much! Any advise from the expert will be much appreciated.

Sounds like it is time to move somewhere with more opportunity.
