Once you apply for and are accepted into a nursing position in the United States or GCC, HealthStaff coordinates and manages immigration and relocation for you. We work as an advocate for international nurses, coordinating the logistics of relocation between you and your employer. Keep in mind that it takes about 12 to 18 months to be placed, regardless of your specialty or medical background. The immigration process is the sole determining factor for how long your placement takes. The timeframe depends largely on where you were born and currently live.
Minimum requirements: You should have at least 2 years of experience working in a modern medical facility. You should also be fluent in written and spoken English and have completed an internationally recognized education program. If you have not already passed the NCLEX RN exam, we can help you prepare for this while processing your application. NCLEX exams are available at test centers in the United States and elsewhere throughout the world.
We work with hospitals and healthcare employers that will provide nurse sponsorship for a permanent work visa (green card).
We help international nurses find healthcare jobs in the United States. We will help every step of the way, from obtaining the correct licensure to settling into a new home in the USA. Follow this checklist to get started.
If you’re earning your RN degree outside the United States, you undoubtedly want to begin your nursing career as quickly as possible. One option is to gain experience in your native country for a few years first.
However, a better option for many international nursing students is to work with HealthStaff to connect with an employer who will hire you into a full-time position and sponsor your green card visa. You may need to continue working in your country until the immigration process is complete, but applying while you’re still a student speeds up the process.
Many hospitals in the USA and GCC are struggling to fill staff nurse vacancies, meaning your skills are in high demand. However, not all job offers are created equal. If you are considering a nursing or healthcare professional position in these countries, you must make sure the opportunity will satisfy your family and career needs. Learn more about carefully evaluating your nursing job offer before accepting one over another.
When you’re eager to start a RN or healthcare professional position, you might be tempted to sign an employer contract without reading it thoroughly. However, it’s vital to understand employer contracts so you know the terms you’re agreeing to. HealthStaff can help educate you on your rights before and after signing a contract.
