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.
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!
