    That is true you can't work as an RM only an obstetric nurse in US. but I still applied for my RM licence in CA(i was surprised I got it). Like you I am now doing specialised nursing(had to get out of midwifery-unsociable hours , on-calls, demanding women-but i love midwifery as a profession!!! )
    I am with Stateside nursing agency- they have been v good so far. what agency r u with?
    How come you were issued California License? Have you been in the US before? If not then I won't believe that you have the license. OK????????

    I feel I should jump to the defense of novb33 here. It IS possible to obtain a US nursing license without having been in the US previously. You obviously haven't done your research, have you? OK ????

    You are not required to have US citizneship to have a US license.........haivng a license to practice and having a working visa that permits you to work are completely two different things.

    Not sure if you really care or are just trying to pick a fight.........and that is not acceptable here.........

    You can actually take NCLEX exam inh Hong Kong, London, and Seoul now.... :angryfire

    Actually it depends when you applied for the licence, you either needed a SSN or ITIN Number and I had a ITIN number(because I have a US bank account since 1999). Now you can only get your licence with a SSN ok !! So please say something positve now my dear:hatparty:. Salesnurse where in the states are you looking to go and speciality(if any)?

    Been for the medicals today in Birmingham. It all went smoothly and was well organised. Took 4 hours but there were 4 of us and it was expensive for the imms that we needed 215 , but expected.

    The Dr was very pleasant and had a good sense of humour. They will either post it al to us before we go to London next friday or they will send it direct.

    I will let you know how the next stage goes too.

    Hi What did they do - I believe they take an x-ray and take bloods - do they tell you the outcome of everything before you leave??? What did they do to the children???

    good luck with your next stage - we arent that far behind you now...

    They did height weight BP, BMI, Checked immunisation history and all PMH. Full clinical examination. Blood for HIV and Syphllis results take a few days to come back. CXR for TB.

    Children same as above except they don't need the CXR and bloods if under 14yrs.

    You get a pack with all the details sealed sent to you to take to the embassy or they post it direct if not sufficient time.

    I needed MMR, Husband MMR and Diptet. Children Hep B.
