I'm an Canadian RN currently licensed in BC. It has been my dream to work internationally, and the opportunity has finally come about that this may be possible. I will be going to South America (Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia) in about a year and after travelling for a few months I would love to be able to settle in either Chile or Argentina and find nursing work. I am having trouble finding information or other nurses experience with this type of endeavour and would love some input.
I have contacted the Chilean embassy in Canada in regards to this and it seems like the process to transfer my license in Chile is going to be a very long and difficult one. Seeing as how I would only be working internationally for about a year, has anyone heard of shorter-term contract work that would be possible to continue with just my Canadian license and not have to transfer? Or even volunteer/intern jobs? Any info or input would be great.
