Hi everyone!!I've been searching for info on working in the US for a long time now and just when I thought I understood the procedure, I find something else that I didn't know or need to know - I'm seriously not that stupid I think but I would love someone to explain what I need to do from the beginning to be able to work in the US pppllleaaseee!!Ok firstly, I should tell you that I am an Aussie and currently completing my final year of a nursing degree(woohoo)....So I don't understand the 'OB and PAEDS" hours??? How many hours?? Can I count the prac hours done through uni?? I have done 80 hours maternity prac but no paeds yet. If it takes a long time to apply for the NCLEX - can I put my name down before I actually finish my degree so i don't have to wait later on???Would I be better off going to the states and talking to hospitals to shop for jobs soon or should I wait till I graduate?? Who can I contact (agency wise) that could give me advice on how to get registration in Utah (where we want to go)?? I guess I was just naive thinking that I would graduate here then apply for the E3 and I could jsut go there and work - there is alot more to this than I thought but feel it will be a worthwhile thing for my family - so I would rather find out now so I can start the ball rolling rather than wait and have to start from scratch later on! What kind of time frame do you think I will be looking at from my graduation?? I plan on doing my postgrad here anyway so there's 1 year accounted for!Any advice would be muchly appreciated!! THANKYOU!!!!
