GETTING STARTED

Take the First Step toward Your American Nursing Experience

Are you ready to live and work as a nurse in the United States? NurseZone can help make your transition to America as simple and stress-free as possible. A nurse who plans to work in the United States must meet basic qualifications and obtain the proper visa and licensure.

Candidates who want to begin nursing in the U.S.A. must be:

  • A registered nurse who has graduated from a three-year RN training program
  • Currently working in an acute-care hospital environment, with at least two year's of post-graduate hospital experience
  • Fluent in English and have good work references

Nurses with these basic qualifications will also need to obtain a permanent residency visa (also known as a Green Card) and a U.S. RN license, which is obtained after passing the NCLEX-RN Examination.

The visa and licensure processes can be complicated for individual nurses, but are much simpler when you obtain the help of a sponsor such as NurseZone's staffing partner, O'Grady Peyton International. Their comprehensive U.S.A. program helps nurses obtain their visas, prepare for and pass the licensing exams, find jobs in their specialties, and handle all of the paperwork and other requirements to work in some of America's top hospitals.

Apply today and a representative from O'Grady Peyton International will contact you.
