Unlocking Opportunities for Canadian and Mexican Nurses with IntelliStaff Medical

Hey there, nursing enthusiasts! If you’ve ever dreamt of bringing your healthcare expertise to the vibrant landscape of the United States, the TN visa might just be your golden ticket. Today, let’s break down the nitty-gritty of who makes the cut, who doesn’t, and how IntelliStaff Medical is shaking things up.

The TN Visa 101:

So, you’ve got your eyes on the TN visa – a fantastic way for Canadian and Mexican nurses to make their mark in the U.S. healthcare scene. Currently, the spotlight is on our Registered Nurse (RN) comrades. Here’s the scoop on eligibility:

  1. Citizenship Check: First things first – you gotta be a citizen of Canada or Mexico. Sorry, world travelers, this one’s exclusively for our northern and southern neighbours.
  2. English is the Key: Speak English like a pro? Fantastic! Communication is key, and fluency in English is a must.
    If English isn’t your fist language you may need to take a test

  3. Degree Check: Of course, you need the right paperwork. A valid nursing degree is your ticket to the TN visa ride.
  4. License to Heal: Got that RN license? You’re on the right track.
  5. NCLEX-RN Victory Lap: Passed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN)? High-five! You’re almost there.
  6. Visa Screen Hustle: But wait, there’s one more hurdle. Before you can pack your bags, you’ll need to ace the visa screen – the final checkpoint in this visa marathon.
    The following organizations are authorized to issue certifications:

    • The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS is authorized to issue certifications to 7 health care occupations). A VISA Screen Certificate costs USD $700
    • Josef Silny & Associates, Inc. (JSA is authorized to issue certifications for nurses). A VISA4Nurses Certificate for Healthcare Workers costs USD $500

Who’s Sitting This One Out:

Now, let’s talk about those who won’t be joining the U.S. nursing fiesta:

  • LPNs and RPNs: Sorry pals, this party is exclusively for the Registered Nurses. Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs), you’ll have to catch the next one. RPNs can become eligible if they pass the NCLEX-RN exam.
  • Canadian Permanent Residents: If you’re holding that sought-after Canadian permanent resident status, the TN visa isn’t in the cards for you. It’s strictly for the citizens.
  • Non-Citizen Nurses: Hold up! If you’re not rocking the citizenship of Canada or Mexico, the TN visa isn’t in the cards for you.

IntelliStaff Medical’s Game-Changing Move:

Now, let’s talk about the exciting stuff! IntelliStaff Medical is making waves by not only recognizing the skills of Registered Nurses but also expanding opportunities for RPNs, LPNs, and even RNs who are Canadian permanent residents.
