// Opinion // Choosing Prudence

With so much economic turmoil in the US, many wonder if internationally educated nurses could still reach their dream of working in the US. While it isn't impossible, it's extremely difficult to find work and get an appropriate visa to be able to work there at this time.

Applying for a US RN license is very costly and the uncertainty of landing a US job makes the gamble doubly risky.

My personal advice would be to choose prudence in light of these current circumstances. Rather than throwing money in the wind, focus on building up on experience, nursing knowledge and improve communication skills. Get a graduate degree (a Masters, would suffice) and specialize in either Critical Care or Emergency Nursing--just these two. If you do these, doors will eventually open up to you.
