You may, indeed, have to struggle. First, you may arrive in Mexico on a tourist permit (FMT) for up to 180 days, non-renewable. If you intend to stay, you will need to apply for an FM3 visa, which requires that you have foreign income/resources to support yourself while in Mexico. You will need a Mexican address and must register any changes. That done, you may seek work and the employer will have to support your application for government permission, for that specific job & location, to be added to your FM3 visa. Mexican wages are very low, especially for teaching English, if that's what you have in mind, and American English is preferred. The likelihood of a nursing position would seem, to me, a long shot and also not well paid. In the current economic crisis, the hospitality industry is really suffering. So, be prepared to support yourself from abroad, as required, for a very long time and, if you get lucky, you may find something once your Spanish is fluent enough.
