Nursing Recruitment to USA?



I am a fourth year BN student in Canada set to graduate this December. I am interested in moving to the United States to work there. Has anybody had any experience with recruitment? Are they still doing that and if so are there events to attend, or would I be better off going through a travel company? My heart is set on Texas, but I am willing to start just about anywhere in the US. Also, has anybody had any experience with this as a new grad? Most companies seem to want at least a year of experience. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Travel companies expect you to be up and running straight away hence the experience required. As a new grad will be hard and registration process can take up to 6 months so better if you can try and get a job and gain experience whilst going through the process and looking for a employer
