Canadian travel nurse to us - feedback?

  1. Hi allnurses, I am a Canadian nurse who has worked on a cardiovascular surgery floor for 4 years. I am looking to do some travel nursing in the states this fall. Currently just waiting for my visa. I am nervous about the shift in health care systems, especially the change of metric to imperial. I've heard travel nurses only get a couple days orientation and this worries me. I wanted to reach out to other Canadian nurses working in the states or people who have worked with Canadian nurses to get a grasp for what to expect being a travel nurse from a different country. How did you find the change in health care systems? Were people understable to the learning process? Have American nurses noticed that Canadian nurses struggle with the change ? Etc.
