How hard to find OPT

  1. I am wondering how possible/impossible it is to find an OPT job after graduation with BSN in the US as an international student? I am NOT asking about H1B sponsorship, permanent job etc - just 1 year of OPT! Is it doable? Has anyone had experience?

    A lot depends on where in the US you are looking to work. Some areas may be more successful than others

    Thank you very much! Do you know of any particular examples? Like in X it is absolutely impossible, in Y there is a chance...

    It's pretty doable. I know a lot of people who worked at a hospital for their OPT

    Hi @titanic200000, can you list the hospitals that your friends worked at for their OPT? Can I also work as a CNA? Thank you!

    Usually opt requires job training for the schooling you are taking
