Hi everybody!

I wish someone could help me out here. I have an australian nursing degree. I would like to know how can i get a job in the US. Any tips and tricks?

My fiance is a US citizen, so I have no issues getting a green card or social security number. Preferably in New York City.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Starting point would be getting nurse license sorted before worrying about a job.

Contact the local nursing licencing authority (unlike australia the US does not have national registration) and work out what you need to be licenced.
Be aware that in many US states an Australian degree is deficit in maternity/paeds - and you may need to do additional study to meet licencing requirements.

First look at NY state licensing requirements and go from there.
