Hi, I'm an international student in an ADN program in the United States. After I graduate, I either plan on OPT (optional practical training) for a year or enroll in RN-BSN program. If I decide to get on OPT, where can I find jobs that can hire me? 

Thank you so much in advance!

Pretty sure that's not a thing in the US. You graduate from nursing school, pass NCLEX, and you're a licensed RN who can apply for regular jobs. There are employers with nursing residencies, but you're still a regular RN with a staff nurse position.

I'd say Work a year with your ADN OPT (Get that one year experience) and then GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND GET YOUR BSN. RN-BSN takes like a year to complete. After that, sign up with a nursing agency that sponsors foreign nurses for green cards. The EB3 Visa requires you to have a bachelors at least. So that is why you need your BSN. Most nursing agencies only want BSN nurses.
