US nurse wanting to work in a different country

Are there countries that allow US nurses to work there? What would I need to do? What requirements would I have to fulfill?

Coffee Nurse specializes in NICU.

Some do. Some do but only if you are fluent in the language. Every country has different requirements for licensure/registration.

I think there are going to be a lot of us asking about that in the coming weeks ...

YoutubeTheNP specializes in ER, PCU, UCC, Observation medicine.

I once applied for a RN position in the United Arab Emirates. I forget the company that handled the work but you can probably google it. Didn't take it because compensation wasn't as good as I thought. Was like 80k a year. Tax free and free room. You didn't have to apply for anything in their country. As long as you had a active license in the US and a passport. That was pretty much it.

Moved to the International Nursing forum

Each country has different requirements both for nurse registration and immigration as mentioned previously but expect fluency language wise for the country you plan living and working in in a lot of cases

Consider Australia :) beautiful country and migration for RNs is easier than for other professions

im also interested in travel nursing outside the US. im having a hard time finding an agency outside of the UK. what about the netherlands or ireland?

Fluent in written and spoken Dutch?

Have EU passport?

I am not. So I guess that answers my question about the Netherlands. :)

Ireland and Australia are on my list as well. Perhaps I should look into more regions where English is spoken. Are there international travel nurse agencies I can work with?

Canada is very difficult, and it will take a long time to get registered, and may require additional education.
