Hello

I am a newly licensed nurse, graduated December 2011. I have a compact license. I am having a really hard time getting a job here in the east coast. Nursing homes are not hiring either. I have sent out more than a hundred applications without any luck.


I would like to relocate to the DFW area because I plan to attend UTA next January to obtain my BSN.


I know it is very difficult for new grads and at this point I would like to focus my job search on ltac/rehab facilities. The problem is most of these facilities still use paper applications and you need to be physically present to complete the application forms.


So can any one tell me how difficult it is to get a job in nursing homes? If I decide to relocate what are my chances of finding a job?


Finally can someone recommend any facility currently hiring?


Thanks

Obviously within your field of work, the more education or specialty you have, your chances
of employment increase.

Have you checked the Texas workforce site for jobs in Texas. Here is the link to register
and view the jobs available. Note: I have been informed that they use a sub-contractor for the listings.

Just curious... are you a registered nurse? what is a compact license?

Did your school help with job placement?

Thanks guys.

Yes I am a registered nurse. The nurse compact license allows you to work in member states and still retain your residency in your home state if you wish.

It makes it easy for you to be licensed in one state and still be able to work in some other states. Texas is a member state.

TWC will not be helpful for a nursing job. If you were looking for an unskilled labor job, then it would be good.

See my response on your other post.
