If you are thinking to start your career in nursing then US is right place for nursing education. Here in US there are lots of nursing schools offering various nursing programs and degree. Mostly nurses obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing to become a Registered Nurse (RN). Further to enhance there credentials they continue with degree programs like - BSN, LPN, MSN etc.
After collecting lots of information from different sources I found nursing is definitely one of the promising careers in term of diffusing unemployment and offer various benefits as well, but to enjoy the service you are required to have valid licenses in nursing. I also came across a site that has a list of nursing schools. You can also find some top nursing schools over here - NursingSchoolsU.com

I think you might need a BSN. They have Diploma based nurses in the U.S but here in Florida where i currently reside there are talks of fazing them out.
I have a Diploma in nursing and left nursing many years ago therefore i have decided to retrain enrolling in a degree programme.
I take it you are an R.N, you might consider topping up your qualification to enable you to have the B.S.N. If i were you i would get in contact with Colleges/Universities that do the training. Some colleges.Universities are Communiy based and can sometimes be difficult to get into, whilst those that are private are easier but a lot more costly.

There is more than one educational pathway leading to eligibility to take the standardized National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)-RN.
Diploma in Nursing, once the most common route to RN licensure and a nursing career, is available through hospital-based schools of nursing
Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) is a two-year degree offered by community colleges and hospital-based schools of nursing that prepares individuals for a defined technical scope of practice. -read more: http://www.nursingworld.org/EspeciallyForYou/What-is-Nursing/Tools-You-Need/RegisteredNurseLicensing.html
After completion of your healthcare degree you need to have a good resume for your job hunt so for that i would recommend you to get writing services from experts in this case. http://www.rnresume.net/
