Canadian nurse wanting to work in New York

  1. Im currently a Canadian nurse who is wanting to work in New York city. I was wondering if anyone could suggest how to go about the process, (as im finding it confusing). Also has anyone moved from Canada to NY to work, and how did/do you find it?

    Any suggestions would be helpful!

    Thanks = )

    Suggest you check out the NY state forum where many experienced US nurses are struggling to find work, you will need to go through CVS with NY and that takes approx 6-8 months to get eligibility to sit NCLEX and then you have to find a employer willing to go the TN route with you and provide a letter of employment. You will also need VSC from CGFNS once passed NCLEX
