You are assured of choices with a nursing agency and can apply to many jobs simultaneously before making a choice.

There are also industries specific portals like healthcare, management or overseas jobs in particular. So use the internet well and look for a nursing job online.
If you can visit the Human resource department of hospitals, clinics, and wellness centres in your community. You can ask if they are hiring and if they aren't you can leave your resume behind. Rest assured if they have a vacancy in the future, they will contact you for that nursing job.
