Making the Move: Mexico to the USA as a Registered Nurse
Are you a nurse from Mexico looking for a new challenge or adventure in your career? If so, we’ve got just the opportunity for you! Read our top 3 reasons below why you should consider continuing your nursing career as an international nurse in the U.S.
Your Nursing Career in the U.S.
Moving from Mexico to the U.S. will not only introduce you to a new country, but it will allow you to make lasting friendships and provide you with a once in a lifetime experience.
A huge benefit for Mexican nurses is that you can travel to the U.S. on a TN visa, which means you won’t have to wait long to start your American adventure. What’s more, your family can join you too!
Conexus will not only help you pursue a TN visa and your first U.S. nursing assignment, but we will provide continuing education throughout your contract, and we will work with you to pursue your next nursing assignment and permanent residency visa, should you and your family wish to remain in the country.

The U.S. is experiencing a considerable nursing shortage. The Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that an additional 203,700 nurses are needed each year up to 2026 to fill newly created positions and replace retiring nurses.
What’s more, there’s a particular demand for nurses who speak more than one language to accommodate the diversity in the U.S., making Mexican nurses highly marketable.
The demand for nurses means the U.S. is bursting with opportunities, but it also ensures guaranteed job security for years to come. In addition, U.S. hospitals are renowned for giving nurses autonomy and authority in the workplace, so you’ll be encouraged to use, share, and expand your knowledge.
The U.S. is the third-highest paying country in the world for registered nurses, behind Iceland and Luxembourg. In fact, the national average salary in the U.S. for nurses is around $68,608, compared to $11,260 in Mexico. With this in mind, it’s hard to ignore the financial benefits of working in the U.S.
