    Does anyone know of any upcoming RN job fairs in the Phoenix area? I know of one Apr 16th, but doesn't look very appealing. Anything else?

    2 quick questions...first a silly one...you can hold more than one active nursing license (not compact state) correct? Also, I've heard recently that hospitals in AZ are either in a hiring freeze or actually laying people off?? Is there a lot of truth to this? is anyone having luck finding jobs there?

    That I don't know. I assume I did, as I recall having submitted transcripts before, but I really don't have a copy of anything. So, I guess i'll be reapplying for CES evaluation? It doesn't help that CGFNS has office hours til noon or 9am my time.

    So they just want a copy of my visa screen certificate? Because that only has a certificate #...unless that is the same as an ID #?

    I'm getting frustrated! I'm trying to apply for my AZ license. I'm currently licensed in CA but originally in MN. I had help from recruiters going from MN to CA, so I don't remember it being this difficult. The application states I need a copy of a letter from CGFNS (i'm from Canada) with an ID number. CGFNS lists a billion different applications, and of course no one to talk to. So, does anyone know exactly what I need? Plus, wouldn't I have already done this going from MN to CA? I don't seem to have copies of anything, just a Visa Screen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hey, I might not be of MUCH help, as I moved from Canada to California before a visa screen was needed and I haven't had to deal with this stuff in awhile...but...I BELIEVE that an I-95 or I-94 and a TN Visa are the same thing. You'll obtain that when you cross the border with your letter in hand stating your offer of employment. Its a little piece of paper with your name and an ID # on it that they staple to the inside of your passport. When you go for your interview and what not, just tell them they will get that when you come down to start work because you can't get it before hand. And, I don't recall needing it prior to getting finger printed. Goodluck! And MAKE SURE you have an address of where you'll be staying when you cross the border...and letter head on your job offer letter! Those guys at the border love to make your life difficult.

    They sound impressive. Which person are you dealing with at Health Staff? I'm looking to move to Melbourne in January as well. I'm just starting to get more in touch with Health Staff as last month it was too early when I originally contacted them. Keep me updated on how things are going for you!

    Hey.
    This is the recruitment agency I've also been working with a little. compared to the recruitment agency I worked with to move to the States, i'm not finding them overly helpful nor do they seem like they really push to get new nurses. Just my opinion. Someone mentioned to avoid the recruiters and go straight to the hospital...I just don't know whre to start with anything. Let me know how things are going with HEalth Staff. I couldn't seem to find many other nursing recruiters online. Also, where and when are you planing to go to Australia?

    Thanks for all the info. Perth is out, but now i'm torn between Sydney and Melbourne! :uhoh21: You mentioned to eliminate the middle man? Is it easy to do everything without a recruiter? I basically rely on them since I have no clue to start with anything.

    Hey Everyone. I have a couple questions i'm hoping someone can help me with! I'm looking to move to Australia in early 2007 on a 1 year work visa. I'm starting to work with a recruiter but still have questoins. My MAIN decision that has yet to be made is where to live. I can't decide between Perth and Sydney. My main purpose of going to Australia is to meet people, see new things and actually EXPERIENCE australia! any suggestions? Also, I've heard of a lot of international people going to Australia so i'm wondering if its easy to meet people there. And lastly, if I work full-time (which i've been told is 5 8hour shifts/week) will that ever give me any time to SEE anything in Australia! Thanks for any help!
