    Regards,

    direct hire is usually a 2 year contract offered by the hospital who will be interested in you, a good way to go if you can stand all the hassle of the paperwork. not all states are short of nurses. but you can make enquiries with any of them, as the majority would be interested especially if they think that you will stay with them.

    with retrogression I would suggest contacting hospitals in the areas of Florida you want to live, be aware many are not taking on foreign nurses until something happens with retrogression. Plus as it stands at the moment you are looking at a few years going through the process so may as well start now with your RN application and get CES done in case you are short on any hours

    Florida Hospital is in Orlando - they recruit foreign nurses but are currently only interested in those with critical care/ICU experience. Try & get into that area once you qualify to maximise your chances. Check out the threads on retrogression etc though -you're in for a long haul I'm afraid!

    I am doing it with the aid of recruiter but started before retrogression started. There is a few others that have found direct hospitals since retrogression but are affected once I140 has been approved.

    I'm one of the latter mentioned above! I got a direct hire position, no agency, no recruiter, just me and my audacious cold calling skills :wink2:. However, retrogression has halted me in my tracks.

    I have called the hospital recently and was delighted because they said they'll wait for me for however long it takes. I count myself very lucky they haven't pulled out on me.

    As I've said before you need to talk to the nurse recruiters/HR in the biggest hospitals in the area you want to work. Also have a look at what their current job vacancies are because that will guide you as to what your chances are. I could have filled 10 jobs on the just the first 2 pages of the hospital I called.

    It is possible but with retrogression seemingly having no end in sight it's not easy. Good luck!

    please i need help please send me your direct hire contacts i have passed CGFNS, NCLEX, IELTS, have visascreen certificate already but my papers aren't moving for two years I really want to find a direct hire hospital. please.

    Have already answered your pm but going direct hire will still be a slow process and you will be looking at a few years before moving to the US and that is if you are lucky to get a visa. No longer a guarantee. I would suggest trying hospitals in the areas you want to live to see if they are petitioning foreign nurses, would also benefit yourself to have a job and gain experience whilst waiting. You may also need to consider another country but be aware very hard now to get into EU

    Can I ask a couple of questions which might seem a bit silly but....

    what is retrogression and Florida BON ?

    Thanks for your advice which you gave me (which is a year ago looking back at the posts!!! Where does the time go!! )

    I am keen on the Port Charlotte/Sarasota area of Fla which is nearby to the home we are building and will be hoping to find a long term post.

    Do you think I should contact them direct or find an Nursing agency that deals with these hospital? Am I being unrealistic (or crazy ) to have a goal of aiming for end of 2008....

    Thank you sorry about all the questions but you are all so helpful and seem so knowledgeable!! :icon_hug:
