January 25, 2024

How-to Guide on How to Get to the USA as an RPN

Hey amazing nursing professionals! Are you ready to take your career to new heights and explore the world of U.S. healthcare? Well, buckle up because today, we’re diving into the journey of how Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) can snag a TN Visa and make their mark in the United States.

The RPN to RN Leap:

So, you’re an RPN with big dreams? The first step on this exciting journey involves leveling up to RN status, and the key to this transformation is the NCLEX-RN. Think of it as your golden ticket to the vast world of U.S. nursing.

  1. Citizenship Check:

    Before you embark on this adventure, make sure you’re a citizen of either Canada or Mexico. The TN Visa is an exclusive opportunity for citizens of these countries. It’s like ensuring you’ve got the right passport before a grand journey.

  2. English Proficiency – Speak the Language of American Care:

    Communication is at the heart of nursing. Being proficient in English is not just a requirement; it’s the bridge that connects you with patients and colleagues. So, brush up on your language skills – you’re going to need them.

  3. Check with Board of Nursing (BON)

    Each BON has it’s own criteria. You may be eligible based on your nursing education, nursing clinicals and your nursing experience.

  4. Conquer the NCLEX-RN:

    Picture yourself triumphing over the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). It’s not just a test; it’s your initiation into the world of Registered Nurses and a crucial step towards U.S. nursing dreams.

  5. Visa Screen – The Final Checkpoint:

    Once you’ve conquered the NCLEX-RN, the next stop on your journey is the Visa Screen. This is like the last checkpoint – a process to validate your credentials and ensure you’re all set to make a difference in U.S. healthcare.

Ready to Work in the USA:

Congratulations! You’ve ticked all the boxes. With your NCLEX-RN triumph and Visa Screen in hand, you’re now ready to spread your wings and work in the USA under the prestigious TN Visa.
