Question: I’m a nurse very much interested in relocating to USA or Canada to work, how do I get started?
Answers: The following include the response to the above question:
- If you plan to do the process by yourself, I would advise you to start the application and verification process with the state board of your interest first, then sit for IELTS and get a visa to write the NCLEX-RN.
If you would like to work for an agency, which I feel is the best way, then you need to contact the agency first and ask questions. Then write IELTS and pass, and the agency will take over the process from you.
