OR thrauma and orthopedic

  1. Hi everybody! I need some question about this field! Cause I'm an international nurse educated outside of USA and I got a BSN and a concentration in trauma and orthopedic, but here in my country i work as an surgical tech in trauma! My question is if I can work in USA as a TICU or I have to take some course! Or what ever! Please help!

    The job market in the US is poor right now. That includes Illinois where you wish to immigrate to...while you may have the experience, you may not be able to obtain a position. Your surgical tech experience might better serve you in an OR position as there is little similarity between the OR and the ICU.
