New license LVN - where to start?

  1. After graduating nursing school two years ago...I finally got around to take my nclex-pn and passed on the first attempt! Now I don't really know where to start to look for jobs...I've read so many horror stories about finding jobs with no experience.

    To start, I've been a pharm tech for a little over six years now...five years in retail and one year in mail order. I have a job offer at a magnet hospital to work as a inpatient pharm tech which pay ranges $18-21/hr but it is pretty much capped there. I'm hoping that I can find a lvn job that will at least equal or beat that amount.

    Is there a specific places that I should apply for that is typically easier to get hired? LTAC, nursing homes, etc?

    By the way, I'm in Houston, TX if anybody know some place hiring.

    Hi there! I live in Spring Branch & have noticed numerous LTC facilities in my area of town with exterior banners advertising nursing positions. I have no idea what other venues they are using to recruit, but you may want to drive around and see if this is the case in your area.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks! There's a job fair at a nursing home that I will be attending. I live near medical center downtown so I prefer to stay within the area if possible.
