    Spanish Nurse in NYC

    Hello, I have no visa or work permit to stay and work as a nurse. That is what I am trying to do now, to look for a sponsor. But it is really hard, yes. What I do not understand is why hospitals are willing to recruit nurses from overseas if an agency do it for them (paying more money - visa+agency fees) but they don't want to do it directly with the candidate. I will try to seek upstate then. If there are more chances. Thank you so much

    Spanish Nurse in NYC

    Hello colleagues! I hope that you all are doing fine. I am a nurse from Spain who got her RN licence in the State on NY. I was wondering if any of you could help me a little bit about how foreign nurses have to look for a job in NYC area. I noticed that having contacts in the hospitals are not enough because the immigration paper work is tremendous. Does anybody can help me? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE:)

    New york city nurses. Help!

    Hello Fellows! my name in Teresa and I just passed the NCLEX! I am a nurse from Spain who would like to start working in NYC. I was interesting in the ER field. However, I feel that I should listen to other nurses about their experiences because this system seems complicated for me. I have no idea about Unions, what is the difference between working in a public or private hospital. Could you help a little to clarify this? Thank you all!

    NP master without the NCLEX?

    Hello, My name is Teresa and I am form Spain. I was writing this message because I have a couple of questions about post graduate nursing studies. As I said, I am from Spain and I validated my nursing degree in the USA in NY by the NYSED. I have not taken the NCLEX yet (waiting to set the date) and I was wondering if there is any possibility to start the NP master without the NCLEX passed. Anybody can help me? I really appreciate your help. Thank you:):)

    NCLEX needed for a master?

    Hello, My name is Teresa and I am form Spain. I was writing this message because I have a couple of questions about post graduate nursing studies. As I said, I am from Spain and I validated my nursing degree in the USA in NY by the NYSED. I have not taken the NCLEX yet (waiting to set the date) and I was wondering if there is any possibility to study a master or certificate without the NCLEX passed. Anybody can help me? I really appreciate your help. Thank you:):)

    WHY is this so long?

    No, no. It is not insulting at all. i am just asking if anyone from a foreign country had the same problem as I have because of the long waiting. I am just talking about the NCLEX, not about jobs because this is a completely different world. Besides, I would never have thought that a nurse could post anything in a place that it is supposed to be helpful for each other, to insult. This common sense is not on the books, it is our practice.

    WHY is this so long?

    Hello HouTx, Thank you for the message. The NCLEX exam is not mandatory in Europe whereas in other countries in the world outside the states it is. Honestly, it socks because we are a long step further than these nurses that made it after finishing the degree. I am mentioning this because this exam is required in many countries and would be amazing if I can take it and pass it. According wkth the job point that you are talking about, it is not specially concerning me right now. First, I would like to focus on the test, secondly, on the jobs. If I could not make it in the us, at least I had a better CV with this exam passed.

    WHY is this so long?

    Hello colleagues! My name is Teresa and I am from Spain. I have been taking a look for few months to this website (that I find really helpful) and today I decided to post my story in order to ask you something. I am currently living in NYC. I WOULD LOVE to become a RN in the USA and I am working very hard for it. January last year, I started my validation process from Spain to the USA. I have been dealing with CGFNS organisation for almost a year to have the red tape done. Now, I am waiting for the letter from NYSED that, supposedly, will allow me to schedule the date of the NCLEX. Reading all the post from nurses that passed the NCLEX cheer me up so badly. However, I do not understand why is this taking soooo long, is there anybody from a foreign country that is going through the same situation? Finally, once that the letter arrives at my house, is it very long to set the date of the exam? THANK YOU SO SO MUCH! LET CHANGE THE WORLD BY NURSING! :)
