My name is Carrie, and I am a Sr. Nursing Student with 8 months to go to complete my BSN! :hatparty: I intend to become an OB nurse and eventually go on to obtain a degree in Nurse Midwifery. My dream in life is to become a midwife and open atleast one birthing center before my days on this earth are over. :chuckle After completing my studies and passing the NCLEX, I would like to relocate to Nassau, Bahamas to work.
Does anyone know how I would go about transfering/obtaining a nursing license in the Bahamas?
I've been having some trouble locating information via the web on US nurses desiring to relocate to the Carribean. There is a wealth of information on international nurses desiring to work in the US but not the other way around. Hence my membership to Allnurses.com!
I was considering possibly becoming a travel OB nurse with an assignment in Nassau, but again it has been difficult trying to find travel nursing agencies for the carribean. Are there any travel nursing agencies that you know of that provide assignments in the carribean?
If it is possible for me to become a travel OB nurse right after graduation, then this would probably be the better way for me to transition to practice in Nassau - as a US nurse on assignment initially.I've visited Nassau and realize that there are only 2 hospitals there (Doctor's Hospital and Government Hospital). After talking the idea over with my boyfriend, who lives there, I feel that the island is "ripe" for a birthing center or two.
Hopefully someone out there has some information that can point me in the right direction. Also, regarding the midwifery degree, would you suggest I complete that in the US or in the Bahamas?
Thanks a million for any information you can provide.
