Nursing in USVI

  1. 1
    I highly recommend working in the virgin islands (St. Thomas, St. Croix, or St. John) you don't need a passport to get there, obtaining a license is fairly quick and easy.

    you do need a personality that can slow down and adjust to 'island life'

    How do I get the license? I can't find anything on the internet about the nursing state board of the USVI. I just graduated from a nursing school in may from Puerto Rico and planning on taking the NCLEX in December.

    Are there ever new graduate positions in the USVI for someone who will graduate with a BSN in May? Would it be a good environment for a new graduate?

    The hospital does hire new grads from the local BSN program here on STT. Other than that it is mostly locals and travel nurses. I don't think it would be a good environment for a new grad from the states because the culture here is extremely different and the hospital is not as modern.

    I am a new RN grad, taking my NCLEX in a few weeks, and I would like to move to the USVI to work as an RN for a few years. Do any of the hospitals take new grads? Does anyone know if any travel nursing companies hire new grads? I have not found any that do. I have previous experience as a nurse tech in a level-1 trauma center ED, and I spent a year living in central africa working in an emergency sexual health clinic. I lived with no electricity or running water, and the clinic I worked at had very minimal supplies. Although I understand that the USVI will be very different from that, I think my previous experience adapting to an entirely new environment would serve me well moving to the USVI. Lastly, I heard that some of the nurses were not getting paid who worked down in the USVI because a hospital was going broke? Is this true? Or was that the grapevine twisting the truth? I have already done a lot of research on my own about working there and moving there, and I would really like to make this happen! If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it!
