I'm looking to move to and work in New York from July 2013 most likely. I currently work in London and have 6 years post qualifying experience - mainly in cardiothoracic critical care and most recently in peadiatric cardiac critical care at a well known London hospital. I would ideally like to continue in this field.... My partner is a medic and has a contract to go to in NY (initially a year) but I'm wondering how to go about working as a nurse?
I've found out that I would need to pass the Nclex (which I can sit in London) and then the state exam?
How would I go about applying for jobs/ visa etc? Is there any agencies I could contact?
Thanks in advance, any information you could give me would be much appreciated.
