Can you work on a J2 visa?

Be aware many US nurses are already struggling to find jobs so having no US experience may hinder you

Hi Silverdragon

Yes I can work on J2 visa.After this visa only I got my RN license no. :-)

Is there anybody else who is going through the same situation like me.I want to know how the nurse on J2 visa manage to get job either in hospital or nursing homes.

Thanks

While you're waiting you may want to brush up on your English skills. Not only is verbal communication important, but also written documentation. Good Luck in your search.

Starting point would be the state Board of Nursing and meeting their requirements for licensure which may include CGFNS CES report and passing NCLEX. Not sure when you are arriving in the US but look at approx 4-6 months to go through the process and get eligibility to sit NCLEX.

Hi, do you think I can start the process for CGFNS CES report while I am here in India? or do i need to be there in the US to start the process? Thank you every one for your support.

Hi Aquina,

You can start your CES report process from India, But before that make sure from the State Board of nursing, which CES Report ( two types) is applicable to you.

Good luck!!:)

Thanks

SHUBH
