Hi, I am a 24 year old pediatric nurse from germany, without any education in the US. I work here in Illinois as a Nanny (in an Aupair exchange program) since 6 month now and i would love to stay. Does anybody know how i can stay in the US and work as a pediatric nurse? I am also a dietician, with an german exam. And i would be flexible to work in this job too. Can anybody help me over it. Or does anybody know who i ca go to figure that out? Thank you very much
enjoy your day

Hi ciccone and welcome! I would suggest that the first thing you do is call the Illinois Board of Nursing and ask them what you would need to do to get licensed here. Once you are licensed you shouldn't have a problem getting a position in pediatrics. You can find their number on Google. Good luck!

That means you've only had peds classes, not adult correct? Contact your state board of nursing and the Allnurses international board for pointers.
