    Oh really? How does that work since they're not a health care organization? Also, do you happen to know of any other company's that offer the same type of assistance? Thanks!

    Since this thread is from 2yrs ago I would think his dilemma is solved by now one way or another...

    The primary role of a nurse in DAT is to secure any needed medical supplies, equipment or prescriptions lost or unavailable after a small disaster. You are not first response, that is fire & EMS. You would be trained in the DAT functions including securing personal items, shelter and any immediate need identified at the scene (such as a hotel room for a renting family with no rental insurance and no family nearby). If you are shelter trained you are first aid, public health & follow up on anyone sent to the hospital from the disaster.

    Red Cross does not bill for disaster services as it's a congressional mandate. However first responders handle most immediate needs and there is minimal need for nurses on a DAT. Perhaps in health services and shelter operations

    Do you hold an EU or UK passport or have you secured work rights? Most US education is not equivalent to the specialized U.K. education especially with the number of clinical hours

    Eliminating reference to your current job is fraud. Not getting the employment verification reference may cause your application to be rejected. Not all US applicants are considered to have equivalent education to Aus nurses

    In your favor, you said it was a drug that required verification from a second nurse.

    This one parent went bonkers. At first the director did as she is required call me in for a meeting, however by the time she called and I arrived the story had turned into such outlandish bs claims that even the non-clinical director knew she was full of it and making crap up as she went along. She took every problem, mistakes she made, and started blaming me even if I wasn't there for 3+ days!

    Without an EU passport or the specialized training like a U.K your chances are slim.

    Yes!

    See I have done a lot of research and spoken to a few people who have done similar things to what I'm asking. There was a few websites who told me they could take me and my family over once I was given a job, do you think this is unlikely?
    Yes, very unlikely. First, UK nurses are specialty trained. US nurses are generalist trained. Your transcript must reflect clinical & theory hours in adult med/surg, geriatrics, pediatrics, maternity/obstetrics and psych/mental health. Unless you are generalist trained with 5-10 years experience in a coveted specialty area such as cardipthoracic OR, NICU, PICU, etc there are dozens of US educated nurses seeking employment. The potential for this wish is further reduced for major metropolitan areas such as NY, Chicago, California as these areas are coveted areas with a surplus of US citizen & PR nurses inexperienced and experienced often several dozen if not a hundred applying for a single job opening resulting in no incentive for an employer to be willing to sponsor. You would be a new grad and unqualified for specialist visas. The employer would have a difficult time proving a specialty trained UK nurse is a better candidate than the locally trained generalist nurses who don't need sponsorship. Most healthcare employers have tended to only sponsor the employee but permitted the employee to add on family at employee cost.

    Many websites say a lot of fantastic things but it does not make the statement true

    The only way to get a SSN:
    born in the USA
    legal permanent resident of the USA (green card)
    become a US citizen
    valid work visa.

    No other way and the SSA will not issue a SSN for you to get a professional license.
