Does any one know some agency or recruiter that hire nurses educated outside of USA? - Page 2Register Today!
- Sep 29, '12 by boohaI am also looking for agencies/recruiters to help place me. I am an RN from Australia and will be getting my US (DC) nursing license shortly. I've contacted 2 recruiting agencies - O'Grady Peyton and Nurse Zone, on September 15, 2012. However, I have yet to hear from them. Its been 2 weeks. How long does it take for these agencies to contact us? I've had everything sorted (by myself). All I need now is just an employer (easier said than done, albeit the ongoing lack of nursing workforce).
In addition, can someone recommend us (me, Yohan and whosever that is accessing this thread) some good recruiting agencies?? Thanks.

If you have got this far by yourself like me, I wouldn't bother dealing with an agency just yet. There are a couple of things that may make it hard to gain employment in our situation. Depends on the hospital and if they are aware of E3 visa and the HR's prior history of recruiting 'outside the square' so to speak. A lot will probably think it is to hard but not know it is actually easy and cost free for them. The other obviously depends on the State and City your applying. Some States are doing much better than others employing new candidates. If you have the experience that they are after and are aware of the E3 visa you are half way there. I think agencies can charge up to $15k to the recruiting hospital for the privilege. I don't think many hospitals are that desperate to pay $$$$$ when they have an oversupply of applicants presently. good luck
