    TN visa

    you cannot get a US nursing license through a TN visa. the TN visa authorizes for you to work in the US (or Canada depending on where you are coming from) as an RN. Different States have different requirements when it comes to endorsing your Canadian license and you will need to meet their requirements to obtain nursing license there. Once you have the nursing license, you can apply to jobs and get a letter for the TN visa, which is obtained at a port of entry (airport or land borders).

    Failed the NCLEX 5 times. Please Help!

    sorry I just have to comment on this, I've been following this thread and while you've been giving honest feedback- I see that you've also been posting a lot of negativity not only to the author of the thread (who is honestly just trying to get some help) but also to others who are kind enough to give her encouragement. Your criticism and ad hominem comments based on speculation are starting to make me cringe.

    Chicago (+suburbs) pay?

    Hey there fellow nurses :) I am an RN (BSN) looking to relocate to Chicago and had a question about the salary. first off, I am in my 4th year of practice and all have been in psych. According to salary.com, if I work in a large hospital, I can expect $36-38/hour. Is this a good reflection of reality? if not, what is the going rate currently? I'm applying hospitals like Rush, Advocate health, Northwestern etc.. I need to do some budgeting but cannot do it without having a good idea of how much I'll actually make. any help/ input is appreciated :) Cheers!

    Failed the NCLEX 5 times. Please Help!

    Im sorry to hear that you're having a tough time. U will get through though!! I personally recommend UWorld! Uworld was my only study source but i made sure to fine comb through every single question and rationales to both right and wrong answers. I sorted through questions according to different systems. Take notes on what i felt was important and moved on. Once i got through every system, i went back and did all the incorrect answers for each system. And repeat until you no longer have incorrect answers. Leave priority/delegation/leadership questions until youve finished all the other systems.

    Canadian Psych RN planning to move to Chicago

    I wrote my NCLEX with Minnesota for the US licensure (because I wrote the CRNE for my canadian license). But I did not have physically go to minnesota to take the exam, I took it at a pearson vue testing center in Canada (there is an additional fee). hope this was a helpful response, let me know if you have any questions :)

    What Can I Do With A BSN? (Without a license).

    Hey! I am a Canadian nurse working in psych. I wrote the CRNE (CAnadian ver of NCLEX) when I graduated and have been working in psych ever since. I recently wrote the nclex for the states to open up my options to go to the States. Having only practied in psych since graduation (4yrs since graduating); studying for the NCLEX was definitely a challenge. I took the advice of recent grads (who took the NCLEX) and subscribed to UWORLD to prepare myself. Initially, it was very overwhelming because of the challenging contents but the more questions you get through the better you get. Focus, focus FOCUS on the rationales, for all options (yes the wrong ones too). Uworld has the same format as the actual nclex so it will help you relax! (although I still had a couple of anxious moments). I wish you luck!
