Welcome! I remember reading an article about how well trained nurses are in SAfrica. I hope you do well here.
My advice to you, as another IL nurse, is to contact the Il Department of Professional Regulation. There is a website you are able to access; there is an administrative branch in Downtown Chicago and the main office is in Springfield IL.
Additionally, if you have a community college near to you, call them, ask for the nursing department and they may have resources available to you. Since many community colleges are so fundamental to training hospital nurses, they are often a great resource to the needs of the community.
Please PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if I could offer your any other suggestions.
