I am a CNA and have been working as one for the past year. I have recently been researching work as a CNA in the states, but am a little confused with a few things.
My questions are:
1. Is your state certification only valid in the state you are working in, and how do I obtain it?
2. Are there any nursing agencies which will sponsor my green card?
3. If not ^, does anyone think I will be hired before my visa interview based on the pretense that my visa will be approved? ( I have had a holiday/working visa before and it can be difficult to obtain a green card without work being organised prior)
4. Will my current australian nursing assistant certificate match the qualifications of an american CNA? Will there be any other tests/exams that I will need to take?
ANY INFORMATION WILL HELP!
