International Nurse Job Resources

​Why should I consider a U.S. nursing assignment?

Healthcare facilities in the United States are experiencing a shortage of nurses. And so, they are offering signing bonuses and very attractive compensation packages as well as career advancement opportunities to registered nurses. When you work with our recruitment agency, we help you get ready for a solid U.S. nursing assignment.
