I don't think I've been posting simple 'you can't do it' posts, though I'll admit I've been tempted. In this case though, there have been several very clear explanations and reasons given by several different people, and the response is that we are being negative. If the poster is going to dismiss everything anyone has to say, perhaps we should just give up and go back to the original question:

moving to the US, is it easy?

And the answer is NO! IT IS VERY, VERY DIFFICULT, AND CAN TAKE YEARS!

There are some visas opportunities for nurses depending on the country you are residing in. Where are you currently?

We already told him that some regions sponsor nurses but that she will have to take her nursing board federal and state. At this point he has not told us if she is an actual nurse and to what degree or rather a day care worker. The British seem to use the same term.

Think that was the other guy, wasn't it? This one was so flabbergasted that his mechanical skills were not a path in that he never did expand on his spouse's possible suitability.

The nursing board thing isn't as easy as that. To take the boards, I think you have to have attended a program the US recongnizes, or at least one that covers a prescribed curriculum. The problem with nurses trained in the English system is that they don't contain as many courses in psychiatry, and because they have a midwifery system, there is virtually no training in obstetrics. The US, and I think Canada, don't use midwives much. Babies are deliverd by obstetricians, and consequently nurses requrie more training in that field.

When I read novels written by English authors but set in the US, they always seem to just move their characters to the US without visa worries, and if a character has a baby, it's always delivered by a midwife. That's actually rare here.

Anyway, the training is different and she can't sit for the boards without the right courses first.

The US recruits heavily for nurses overseas, but only in places that use the US system and take US boards to graduate.

We had two - the mechanic's wife with no details and the A/C technician's wife who is in daycare.

Synthia - noone implied that moving to the US using nursing as a way of obtaining a visa is easy. A bit of initiative such as Google will answer all questions on what, when and how.

Yes they recruit heavily for US regions in need of skilled nursing staff. That Asian nurses are more willing to continue their education and work for the duration of a contract in sometimes not very popular areas of the US - you tell me. Hospitals do sponsor potential nurses, sometimes even with tuition reimbursement.
Stomping ones feet because immigration laws apply to all instead of researching different avenues does not seem like a serious immigrant to me.
