Making the Move: Mexico to the USA
Are you a Mexican nurse looking for a new challenge in your career? We've got just the adventure for you. Read our top 3 reasons why you should take your career journey to the USA.
A Lot Closer Than You Think
Making the move from Mexico to the USA will not only give you the opportunity to work in a new country but it will allow you to make lasting friendships and provide you with a once in a lifetime experience. A big benefit for Mexican nurses considering making the move to the USA is that they can travel to the US on a TN visa. This means that your dream of working in the USA could be a lot closer than you think. With a TN visa you won’t have to wait long at all to start you adventure in the USA and what’s more is that your family can join you too!
Our support doesn’t just stop here. If after you have completed your contract you are still interested in continuing to work and live in the USA, we can work with you to consider other visa options.
With the increasing demand for nurses in America, experts are forecasting a major nurse shortage and are estimating that an extra 1.2 million nurses will be needed by 2020. What’s more is that there is particular demand for nurses who speak more than one language to reflect the growing diversity of the US – making Mexican nurses extremely sought after!
Not only does this high level of demand mean that the USA is bursting with opportunities for nurses but it also means that nurses in the US are guaranteed job security for years to come. On top of this, US hospitals are also giving nurses more authority in the workplace, meaning that RN's are not only given their time to shine in the USA but they are also continuously encouraged to use, share and expand their knowledge.
And, did you know that according to a Gallup poll in 2016, Nursing was voted the most trusted profession in the US for the 15th year in a row? A statistic that would make anyone feel appreciated and proud to work as a nurse in the US!
If you’re a Mexican nurse, it’s probably not news to you that the average earnings in Mexico for a specialized nurse are considerably low considering the years' of training and hard work that it takes to become an RN. Meanwhile, the average starting salary for a registered nurse in the US is between $20 and $35/ hour. Couple this with the increasing demand for nurses in America, and making the move to the US is an opportunity not to be missed.
Working in the USA as a nurse is a big change from nursing in Mexico but it can be a great adventure for you and your family.
