Practicing Nursing in the U.S.
Practicing in the U.S. has been specifically developed by Conexus MedStaff to provide you with an introduction to the U.S. healthcare industry and the expectations of the role of an RN in America.
We aim to familiarise you with some of the main regulations and practices that govern health care and nursing in the United States.
Conexus are committed to helping you prepare for your orientation to your new role as a Registered Nurse in the U.S.
Our commitment extends also to the hospital groups where Conexus nurses fulfil their employment contract. We endeavour to provide the best nurses who are equipped with detailed knowledge of the U.S. healthcare system and the exceptional levels of care nurses are expected to deliver in the U.S.
It is for these reasons that practicing nursing in the U.S. is a mandatory course that you are required to take and pass before moving to the next stage of your Conexus journey.
