I'm in my second year of the RPN program in Ontario, Canada and I'm looking to permanently work in Florida. Someone told me that recruiters will come up from states like Florida and Texas to "grab" lots of Canadian nurses, and that there are a lot of benefits in doing so. I have also heard that it takes months or years to find a job down South. I've had so many different answers and responses and was hoping someone could answer a few questions
1) What is the American equivalent of an RPN?
2) What is the process of applying and/or being recruited internationally?
3) If I want to upgraded to RN while living and working in Florida, do I apply/pay for school as an International Student still?
Thank you so much!
