What Is Required For A US Work Visa
Securing a US visa currently is a tough challenge, unless you have a family, an employer or large sums to invest. As a Nurse, I would not hold out on securing a job offer as US immigration control discourages employers from looking overseas to fill skills gaps and the US train a large number of Nurses each year.
I would recommend you look at Canada as a great option. Even though Canada also has tough immigration controls and Nurses are heavily regulated there is more of a chance to secure a working visa, employer or an international experience class visa if you are young enough.
In my opinion, Nurses should be able to live in the country of their choice as they only bring benefits to the local community assuming they have the skills. Unfortunately, in the modern world countries are closing their borders, which is disappointing.
