Silverdragon102 has 33 years experience as a BSN and specializes in Medical and general practice now LTC.

A member of allnurses.com since 2001 when looking for options and support when looking at moving from the UK to the US. Strangely that changed to Canada and deciding we loved where we lived the US became a place to visit instead of living. I love animals and currently have 5 dogs and they are all rescue, ages ranging from 3 to 9 years of age. current hobby if playing with epoxy resin and acrylic paints and have a few various things done like paintings and coasters. 

If you appreciate allnurses®, help us get the word out to the world. Other students and nurses would love to hear how awesome we are! Please, it only takes a minute, but means so much to us. Thank you! Click here to leave a review on Google.

    Candian RN to California help sos

    I would suggest looking for employer willing to support for visa application but it doesn’t have to be a travel nurse as nafta isn’t difficult to obtain as long as you meet state requirements, have a license, visa screen certificate and a job offer

    Candian RN to California help sos

    Do you have a US SSN? California will not accept application without it.

    British Educated RN applying to California BON

    Unless you have a US SSN or ITIN then you can’t submit anything to California

    SSN info, please

    Usually paperwork is good for 3 years. You shouldn’t have to take the NCLEX again but will need to resubmit paperwork and any other relevant documents. Because California requires a US SSN then you can’t submit anything until in the US and a number has been issued to you

    Licensure endorsement for California???

    California is a hard one to apply to and until you apply and submit paperwork they will not make a decision and just because you are licensed in one state cannot guarantee meeting California requirements

    Advice on international nurse moving to Canada

    What does the provincial college of RN for the province you want to live and work in say? Usually it is so many nursing hours in the past 3 or 5 years

    RPN moving to California

    You will need a license from California to work in California. Some RPN’s have managed to obtain RN in the US but a lot depends on your transcripts. You would have to search for bridging programs for the US if you are not able to get RN but if planning on returning to Canada it may be beneficial looking at bridging or BSN

    Uk paediatric nurse looking for some advice please!

    What some provinces are doing is getting you over for an assessment which will decide on whether you have enough experience or need to do some courses before sitting NCLEX

    3rd-year BSN student in Canada looking ahead to USA

    You need to start by applying to a state for initial license by exam but if passed NCLEX for Canada then arrange for results to be forwarded

    As I look at their website the international section excludes Canada but the other section only looks at requirements if trained in the US. Have you tried contacting the BON? Another option is apply to another state and endorse

    Which state are you wanting to live and work in?

    NHS Superannuation

    Something I have been thinking about sorting and I would definitely have issues as I left the UK in 2008 and I paid into it from 1986 to 2002. I do have a Barclays Visa card but also haven’t used that since 2008. Would be interested to see what sort of answers you get
