    There are on-line programs available, however, they all require some time to be sent in a hospital in the US. Not sure how you will do that; also most have very expensive tuitions. You would be much further ahead to wait until you start work here as many employers will pay part of your tuition.

    The MSN also requires clinical hours in a facility in the US.

    No they can't. They woulkd need to pass exams to work as an nurse, and the other areas are unskilled areas and do not advise those at all. Why throw away all of that training. And then it is a temporary work permit and slave conditions in many cases. We never, ever recommend that.

    Only going thru the proper channels. Please look at the Primer at the top of this forum.
