    Thank you for your comments. I'm wondering, is it easier to register with Minnesota state? Is it faster - how long does it take on average? But I'm assuming i still have to wait until i graduate and have my final transcript before i can apply, right? And once i apply, can I register for the NCLEX or do i have to wait to get the AAT letter first? For CT state, i checked and don't need my Canadian license before i can apply (but i will still want to have this after i finish school next summer anyway). I was on a TN visa before, and it was the employer who actually applied for it for me, basically inviting me to come to work in US -so i need to find a job before I can even apply for the visa. I don't know anything about the NAFTA visa, so I'll read more about it. Thank you!

    I am new to this website, and have been reading various posts for the past few days. I don't know if I posted this in the right place, but I need some advice on how to license for US and finding jobs early. I am currently a nursing student in the accelerated/second-degree 2 year program at Univ. of Toronto, and I will graduate next year in June. After I graduate i want to move to CT state and start working right away. I want to plan ahead and get my license sorted out. Can anyone help me understand the sequence of the steps for licensing and registering for the NCLEX? I've already contacted the board of CT nursing and know I have to send in an application form and a fee of $180, but I don't have a sense of how to time my application, how soon to send it in to make sure I don't waste any time after graduating. Do I have to wait until i have all my grades on the transcript to send in my application forms and register/write the NCLEX? And does anyone know how long the process take, or is it fatser/easier to register with another state? The board has already told me I'm not considered foreign trained, so i don't have to worry about the CGFNS.

    Also, I've already worked in CT for 2 years prior and volunteered at Yale New Haven Hospital where I want to work. There is no link on the hospital's website to nursing recruiters etc. or even departments - how can I find jobs for students who just graduate, because I won't have experience upon finishing and most jobs on their website ask for years of experience. Any suggestions? Thank you!
