I have been a RN in canada for approx 3 years now for the last year i have been trying to go down and work in the US...Nevada to be exact ...unfortunatly had a nurse recruiter whom has directed me the wrong way and i am now realizing that she is wasting my time so i am going to try this on my own ...in fact i just wrote my NCLEX a few weeks ago and did miserably in which i found to be very shocking and much different then the Canadian exams ..Now I am lost and Have no idea what to do or study for any means ...any suggestions and help would be so nice at this point before i pull my hair out !!!

I understand exactly what you mean....I have a program called Med-Surg Nursing Made Incredibly Easy, it's part of a series of programs and books for US students, but I use it because it "keeps me sharp" in that skill set....anyway, it does focus more in the area you talk about rather than the psychosocial elements we got on the CRNE....I have no first hand knowledge of how the immigration process works, but I am following what I find here on this site...I plan on studying for the NCLEX using something like a Kaplan NCLEX
review or similar...my plan is to take the NCLEX in Maine, and license in Minnesota....I need to get a Visa Screen done as well I understand...
Edit: This sequence is not correct....the "Working in the US" thread is stickied and a good place for correct info!!
