    Suggested reading is retrogression and the 6 plus years it will take to get a immigrant visa (usual visa for nurses that can not use NAFTA or E3 (Australian citizen)) and that starts once you find a employer willing to wait that long. Finding employer will not start until you have met Florida BON nurse requirements as a International nurse and for the UK a lot will depend on how long ago you trained and that your transcripts included both clinical and theory hours on Paeds, Mental Health, Obstetrics and Adult, and passing NCLEX

    Hi there! I have been working as a nurse in Orlando for about 2 years now. As far as the visas/immigration stuff I'm not all that familiar...but basically in order to work as a nurse in the states you must past the NCLEX ( There is a minimum of 75 multiple choice questions, and I believe a maximum of 265. Once you pass this, you will be considered a Registered Nurse (RN). We have some really great hospitals here. What specialty would you like to work in?
