    I've wondered about this for awhile. If you currently have a license in the states, what steps are necessary to obtain or transfer your license to another country? Are the steps universal or does it depend on which country you are transferring to?

    My thoughts would be to check with an agency that does international assignments. See what they pay and then see if itll be enough to balance that checkbook.

    Moved to the International forum

    Not just meeting the country's requirements to be a RN but you also need to think about immigration requirements and obtaining permission to live and work in that country.

    Each country will have their own requirements so a lot will depend on where you want to work

    Check out the international forum. It's nearly impossible to work abroad in the UK right now unless you have a EU passport or are the spouse of someone with an EU passport, due to the economy. The NHS is cutting jobs across the board and hiring preference goes to UK, then EU, then everyone else, and there isn't anything out there right now...

    There are plenty of resources here but a lot will depend on what country you wish to move to. Each country will have their own requirements plus you have to think about the immigration requirements

    Please take the time to read the forum and also you need to decide which country because as I mentioned before each country will have their own requirements both for nurse registration and immigration
