Job Description

Opportunity to Relocate to USA:

Ever dreamt of working as a nurse in the USA? There has never been a better time to consider making the move to the USA. With an aging population in the USA 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 USA 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 USA.


Relocation from Canada:


If you are a Canadian Citizen relocation to the USA is very quick and easy. Once you have passed your NCLEX 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


Why Conexus?


Conexus has offices located in the Houston, Texas and Lexington, Kentucky. We have an experienced team that has mobilized hundreds of nurses to work in the United States. Conexus presently has contracts with over 85 hospitals in the United States that are operating in over 20 states across the country as such Conexus has several exciting opportunities to offer qualified ­­­­­­­­nurses across the United States.


Conexus sponsors the TN visa process and if at a later point you desire to make the move more permanent and apply for your green card (EB-3) visa Conexus will sponsor and pay for your green card visa.


For Canadian citizens interested in making the move to work in the United States through Conexus we offer flexible periods of employment but do ask that you sign a contract for a minimum of 12 months as the orientation period with Conexus’ client can take up to 12-14 weeks


Benefits of Employment:


Conexus manages and pays for the whole immigration and licensing process. When the time comes for you to mobilize to the United States, Conexus will either cover the cost of your mobilization flight or reimburse you for the cost of your travel expenses, should you wish to organise your own travel arrangements. In addition, Conexus pays for your first 30 days of accommodation in the United States and also provides you with a $1,000 deployment bonus when you come to work with Conexus' client in the United States.


During your employment with Conexus, Conexus will pay for 60% of your medical and dental insurance through its programme and will pay you bi-weekly.


Depending on where you go to work in the United States the salary which you will be paid will vary due to the cost of living and the number of years of experience that you have. Conexus offers positions that have a starting salary of anywhere between US$20-35/hr. This is the equivalent to Canadian $27-47/hr. For any hours worked over 40 hours per week overtime will be paid at 1.5 times regular salary. It is worth noting that after you have gained 2-3 years of experience working as a Registered Nurse in the USA then your earning potential will increase quite considerably especially given the demand for Registered Nurses in the USA over the coming years. The average salary for a Registered Nurse in the United States at the moment is US$70,000 per annum


Our experience of placing nurses, our list of clients and our excellent benefits make Conexus a great choice for you and your family to choose when looking for a sponsor to come to the United States. At Conexus we like to think that we are more than just a recruiter and want to build long term relationships with our nurses and help them build career pathways with their careers in the United States.
