WORK AS A NURSE IN THE US

The various states in the United States need a nurse to fill their hospital. Thankfully, Ghanaian nurses are one of the most respected across the globe and as surely are high demand in the US. Lots of nurses from Ghana have already taken advantage of these opportunity and there are a lot more demands. In the face of the unemployment situation in Ghana as graduate nurses will have to wait three to four years to grain employment, there is no restriction on Ghanaian nurses migrating to countries where they can get employment. Lots of nurses have already gone to countries like the UK, Ireland, and Barbados (with government arrangement).

The following are the processes one who desires to work in the US needs to go through.

First of all, one needs to be a qualified nurse, nurses with either a degree or diploma are qualified. They, then, need to obtain the academic module of IELTS. The certificate should not be more than twelve months old. The score required in IELTS is relatively lower than that which is required for the UK and Ireland. An overall band score of 6.5 and 7.0 in the speaking component is all that is needed. The grades in the other three components do not matter so long as they average with the 7.0 in the speaking as 6.5. It is advisable that those who missed out on reaching the requirement for the UK and Ireland in terms of IELTS to consider their grades against the requirement for the US. If they do, then it is worth considering the most powerful country in the world.

Once those two conditions are met, Dreams Consult through their partners in the US will help you obtain a slot to sit for the US licensing exams: the NCLEX.

After this exam is passed then the US green card will be worked on and an employer recommended for the candidate. Candidates are free to reject or accept an employment offer or negotiate the terms. It is worthy of note that Dreams Consult or its partners do not have any influence on the job offer neither are they parties to the contract the candidate will have with the employer.

After the offer is accepted, the Visa application will be filled and travel arrangements made by the employer.

The sponsorship package in this process includes but not limited to the NCLEX registration, flight to India or Filipine for the NCLEX exams, Visa application fee, flight to the US, and temporary accommodation for up to three months.
