Overseas agencies

  1. I am looking to nurse overseas, originally I was concentrating on the USA, but thats beginning to look impossible, so I am thinking first the UK, then Canada. My question is has anyone been to these countries through recruitment agencies or heard which are reputable and which are not.

    I have only come across about 2 or 3 for Canada, but a lot for the UK. Not sure if it matters but I am not looking at going to London, a few agencies concentrate there. Thanks heaps.

    What's impossible about the US. Take the NCLEX and then go for it. TAkes a year or so but they will welcome you with open arms as a few of my mates have found out. Tip: Fly over and take the exam yourself, don't go agency as you will have many more options.
    Good Luck

    Well if only it was that easy, but it's not. It is a requirement to have hours in theory and practical in both obstetrics and paediatrics before you can even be eligible to take the NCLEX, neither of which I have or can find.
