Hi, I am an Aussie nurse of 7 years hoping to move to Oregon to join my boyfriend (a US citizen). I have just started researching the process of getting my nursing registration there and it seems like a long difficult and expensive process.Can anyone tell me where I start? I have started studying for the NCLEX and I have a copy of my academic transcripts. I have read that the USA is not likely to accept my degree, how do I find this out and how do I made the requirements up? Also how do I get the criminal background check sorted if I am in Aus? I didn't want to go through an agency because I was just hoping to get the E3 visa. If anyone has done this process recently, any guidance would be greatly appreciated! Pretty much where do I start, and what steps should I be taking?Thanks!!
