I hope someone can help. I've recently moved to the hottest place on Earth, the Imperial Valley and need a job urgently. I'm a nurse with six years experience in hospital nursing with CA and AZ license, BLS and ACLS.
I've applied at several places, nursing homes and they're not hiring. I applied at the Yuma hospital and one of the Imperial Valley hospitals here. I can't work at El Centro Regional for reasons I will not disclose.
I'm an excellent nurse and realize that not being in a large city in this economy makes this difficult, but there never seems to be any urgency on the part of people who hire. Everything seems to go at a snail's pace. I know the unemployment rate is hight but I am a highly trained, skilled person who was in demand at one time. I am also bilingual.
Anyone about the situation or have any leads? Obviously I'm willing to commute to Yuma even to work. Thanks all! Also, is there any per diem agency that staffs nursing facilities in this area or Yuma area? I haven't found any...
