Arrow ☀ Best career path for BSN with RN license, but no experience? ★

☀ Best career path for BSN with RN license, but no experience? ★
I got my Bachelor of Nursing Outside of the U.S. (BSN) 10 years ago. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience 5 years ago. Then I came to the U.S. working as a research fellow (postdoc). In 2011 I passed the NCLEX exam and obtained the Registered Nurse License.

I hope to start my RN career. But I did not attend any school here, and I do not have any clinic or nursing experience in the U.S.

Could you please advice what is the best way to get started?

Specifically:
1. What departments or employers are likely to employ greenhands like me?
2. What's the best course to effecitively gain relavent experience?
3. What other things I can do to make myself more marketable in this field?
4. Are programs like "Registered nurse refresher program" suitable for me? Are they worth it to break into the industry?

Thanks so much!
