Becoming a Nurse in the USA
The O’Grady Peyton U.S. nursing employment and jobs program is designed to help expand your nursing career.
From the moment you apply to our international nursing program, you'll receive end-to-end support on every step of the nursing license, U.S. visa and sponsorship process. We are dedicated to the professional and personal success of both you and your family. Use the following checklist to get started, and start the application process today:
O’Grady Peyton Nursing Program Application
If you have successfully completed a recognized education program, including minimum general and professional hours; are fluent in English; and have a minimum of 12 months’ experience in a clinical setting, your skills could be in great demand in the United States. You can learn more about the program’s requirements here.
The NCLEX-RN is a mandatory U.S. nurse licensing exam. We can assist you with license application paperwork and will help you prepare for the exam with educational materials, practice exams and seminars. Once you are ready to take your exam, O’Grady Peyton International can assist you in finding the nearest NCLEX test center. You can still apply for the program while you prepare to take the exam.
Permanent Residency Visas (Green Card). Once you have your registered nurse (RN) license, we’ll begin the visa sponsorship process for you. O’Grady Peyton International will sponsor you and your immediate family members. We will also apply for your Visa Screen™ certification, a credentialing program that confirms you have completed a required screening program for healthcare professionals.
