Are you a nurse looking for work in the US? Here are the steps for getting started. Once you have your Registered Nurse license, you can look for a job through a nursing recruitment agency or US-based employer. You are eligible to work in USA if you are a Registered Nurse at your home country. Contact the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) to see if you are qualified. Passing the Nclex Exam to figure as an RN may be a vital requirement for nurses to be used within the USA. Previously in India there was no center for Nclex exam. The nurses who want to clear the exam and get the license for nursing in USA required traveling to USA. Passing the Nclex (National Council Licensure Examination) is your key to get a nursing license in USA. So, the simplest advice is to require NCLEX through a State Board of Nursing that has less stringent requirements.
