Job Description

Opportunity to Relocate to US

Ever dreamt of working as a nurse in the US? There has never been a better time to consider making the move to the US due to the current nursing shortage the country is facing. With an aging population in the US and the average age of a Registered Nurse at 58 years old it is projected that there will be anywhere between 1 – 2 million Registered Nurse positions in the US over the next 5 years. As a result of this there has never been a better time to consider making the move as an International Registered Nurse to the US.

Relocation from Canada

If you are a Canadian Citizen relocation to the US is quick and easy. Once you have passed your NCLEX-RN examination and have acquired your visa screen, your temporary work visa (TN visa) will be ready in a matter of a couple of weeks. (Please note that if you did your nursing degree in a none English speaking location (Quebec or outside of Canada) then you will also be required to take the academic version of the IELTS exam) We also help and support International Nurses who have made the move to Canada but have found it difficult to find a registered nurse position in an inpatient role.
