I have worked in home care nursing, in doctors offices, in the hospital, emergency room, so I have experience. I am also looking for a nice man to fall in love with. That would be the icing on the cake.

Any advice on where to go from here?

Contact the Texas State Board to see what specialist qualifications you have that will transfer, then use their recommendations to find a sponsor, good highly qualified people are always in demand.

Once you have their qualification analysis contact the Veterans Administration, Prison Service, or other state agencies that are always looking for qualified people.

Make a phone friend in the office and use them to help you get over here.

Reach out to other Norwegians already here or Norwegian companies with offices in the state.

The companies they contract with will be the ones to contact, the state agencies can tell you who they are and when the contract ends
