Good afternoon everyone from uk Wales

I am due to start my nurse degree in Wales (uk), I will be qualified RGN in 3 years time and I am looking at relocating to USA, considering California as a location at the moment.
I am after some advice or any informations that I could find useful at this point. I know 3 years it's a while away but I am quite a planner he he

I am aware of the visa requirements etc and I have read on a site called nurses 4 America and I know that I need to take a test to be able to qualify as RN in USA.

You have to take the nclex exam in the us (any state) and then find an employer who is willing to sponsor you for a visa. Find a travel nurse company who will do that (there are dozens of them). Do your research and read the fine print..you will be stuck with them until you get a green card.
You will need at least a year or two experience..a specialty will help too (icu, ER etc). Go to all nurses.com for info. Nursing here is quite different than uk.
