I'm 27, Single, live in the UK and have 5 years post-qualifying experience in med/surg adult nursing with a BSc 2:1 degree in Adult Nursing.

I'm looking to move to Cali, or Florida ideally but beggers can't be choosers! It's always been a passion of mine and at uni we completed "EU packs" which covered theoretical practice in paed, mental health & midwifery.

I've looked at Peyton o'grady and some others but I've heard mixed reviews!! I guess I'd need to sit my NCLEX but I'm not sure the next steps after passing that (If I pass, it looks really hard!!)

If the USA is too much of a long shot I'd consider Canada too, if it's any easier.

thanks for any help

JD
Hi JD1990, I’m living in Texas moved over in May as Christmasommpa said we had a very stressful time of it, but we are now settled and enjoying the experience. If you are interested in relocating to the USA I suggest you contact O’Grady Peyton who will advise you on how to immigrate to the USA. TBH OGP have been fine apart from the hiccoup prior to leaving the UK, here in the USA they are very proactive and supportive. I would certainly recommend them. If you have any questions please feel free to PM me. If you decide on starting the process expect a 18 month timeline until you land in the USA.
