Inappropriate contracts for foreign nurses

Please be very careful with the contracts that you sign. Especially those of you from China, India, and the Philippines. There are companies that will try to get you to sign a contract for working in the US as a nursing assistant for under $8 per hour. You can probably make more working at the local McDonalds. It may sound like alot of money, but trying to live on that in the US is almost impossible. Most of these contracts are for minimum of three years. Be aware that you cannot begin working as an RN as soon as you pass your NCLEX exam. Even though you would be in the US, you still have to pass the full set of English exams and have a Visa Screen Certificate. So nothing will happen overnight. You are much better off in your own country than trying to do this...................

Please keep yourself safe, there is no guarantee what your living conditions will be like or where they will be.

Please keep this in mind............and just wait the time that you need to for the laws to change. :)

Hi Suzanne! It's alway nice to have you as a reference. I, personally, was offered several different contracts, that I understood were unconvenient; and, I'd like to advice other nurses to read carefully all contracts offered. There are some agencies that offer a good pay but, they make you sign a previous contract in which it is stated that the nurse must work for them for a period of about 2 years, and that the nurse has to get any offer the agency makes whithin that period, regardless of the pay. This pay isn't stated in the contract, it's only offered on the phone. Besides if the nurse is denied a work permit by INS, for personal reasons , the nurse has to pay to the agency a lot of money. I'm talking about 12,0000 to 18,0000 dollars.

so everybody be aware of what you sign!!!
