I am a newly graduate RN from BC, Canada. I have taken the NCLEX exam already in Canada. I got my license to practice in British Columbia, Canada earlier in the year but I never got a chance to practice due to extenuating family circumstances. I have now relocated with my husband to Seattle due to his job.
I am now starting the process to get a Washington state nursing license. I was wondering how difficult is it to get a job as an inexperienced RN? My nursing preceptorship in 4th year of nursing school was in ICU but I am not picky and open to work in any unit. I used to work as a Nursing Aide in the Medicine Unit during nursing school.
I was wondering if it is possible for me to get a Nursing Aide job while I wait to get my RN license in Washington State. I am new to this city and was hoping to get some insight on what is the nursing atmosphere is like in this city.
Hope someone will reply to this thread :)
