I also posted in the international forum, but thought I could maybe get some info here! I just have some questions about traveling in the U.S. on a TN Visa. I'm a Canadian and currently working in the U.S. as a staff nurse, but just signed up with a travel agency and got an assignment in California. I would love to hear from other Canadian nurses traveling in the U.S. and I have a few questions!
I know dozens of Canadians that come hither to the SW USA to escape the Winterland of Canada. Without fail, the talk turns to health care, and now they tell me they have to pay $800/month to maintain their Canadian health insurance while they come here to bask in the sun? Also, a couple have told me that despite their paying the USA premium, Canada requires them to return home (and pays for their flights) to receive treatment for a list of conditions, such as surgery to repair a fractured hip?
Curious if you know more about this.
