    Your best bet is to post in the International Forum.

    You may find difficulty in getting an agency/facility to sponsor you for GA. The nursing shortage is not as acute there as other locales, the wages are low, and few facilities want to take on the expense/paperwork.

    I agree that. Try South Carolina. I worked with Philipino's at Pepper Hill Nursing Center in Aiken, SC. There is someone there who sponsors and he's very nice.
