Want to join fellow Canadian nurses working in the USA?

Travel nursing from Canada to the US is easier than you might think. At 澳门天天好彩, we handle the paperwork so you can focus on what you do best: taking care of patients. We鈥檒l take care of everything else.

And we mean EVERYTHING! We don鈥檛 think coming to the USA should cost you a lot of time or money. That鈥檚 why we offer this concierge service to make things as easy as possible.

Become a Canadian Nurse Working in the USA

International travel nursing can be intimidating. That鈥檚 why we walk you through each step of the process.

What鈥檚 the timeline for travel nursing from Canada? The short answer is around six months (with 澳门天天好彩). That鈥檚 around half the time it would take you to do it on your own or go through other Canadian travel nursing agencies. Our experts walk you through the process and review your paperwork for errors before you submit. We get you there faster by removing the barriers that slow your application.

As a Canadian nurse moving to the USA, here鈥檚 what you鈥檒l need:

  1. VisaScreen certification through CGFNS

    CGFNS evaluates your education/credentials and verifies that you can work in the US by granting the VisaScreen certification. If you qualify for our licensure project (see right) we'll reimburse your $540 application fee once you start working. And more good news ... we can take care of the following requirements simultaneously. Again, the ENTIRE process should only take six months.

  2. US State License

    You鈥檝e applied for VisaScreen certification. Great job! Now you need a US state license (we鈥檒l pay for this too if you qualify). This can take anywhere from 4-12 weeks to be issued. Again, we can work on your license while you鈥檙e waiting for your VisaScreen certification.

  3. Book a travel nursing job!

    Now, you鈥檙e ready to go. Because you鈥檙e smart, you鈥檙e working with an experienced Canadian travel nursing agency. As we say in the US, 鈥渢his isn鈥檛 our first rodeo.鈥 We have deep relationships with facilities across the country. We know which healthcare facilities will book you with some of the paperwork pending.

  4. Border crossing documentation

    Congrats! You got a job and it鈥檚 time to join your fellow Canadian travel nurses in the USA! We鈥檒l walk you through what you need to bring. Gather that documentation and cross the border within 10 days of your contract start date. Request TN Status (AKA the TN Visa for Canadian nurses) at the border. Again, we鈥檒l help with this!

  5. Apply for a US Social Security Number

    Once you鈥檙e in the US, it鈥檚 time to apply for your social security number. This number allows you to work in any state. You should get your social security card in the mail in 4-8 weeks. This won鈥檛 affect your timeline. You can work at certain facilities while waiting for your social security card.

    (Offices are currently closed due to COVID-19. This doesn't affect your ability to work.)

If any of this sounds complicated, don鈥檛 worry! We send you detailed instructions for each step of the process, track the status of your application and provide updates along the way. We have an expert licensing team dedicated to Canadian nurses. They can answer questions and provide guidance. Contact them anytime!

We鈥檒l send you an emergency contact number so you can reach us at all hours of the day or night.
