Hey.. I'm Rick and from Germany.

At the present time, I am in the USA studying for one semster abroad. My major is English. I'm in the English class so I can improve my English speaking, writing, and comprehension skills.

In Germany I worked for two years with nurses. My dream is to live and work in America.

My question is - What do I need to do to work in America as a nurse? What sorts of documents are needed? What are your lessons and challenges learned in this job? I would like to explore your feelings as an American nurse. Thanks.

Suggest you read the world section as the US currently under retrogression meaning demand for visa outweighs actual visa allocation so currently looking at over 6 years for a immigration visa which is what nurses generally go under and the waiting times doesn't start until you find a employer and they file your application.

Each country has different ways that nurses roles work. Hopefully some US nurses will pipe in but also suggest a good read in the various forums
