I am a final year student nurse studying for an DIPHE in adult general nursing, my ambition is to move to the USA to start my nursing career. I am soon to be married and have a young son under the age of one and wish to migrate with my family. I wanted information on VISA's, requirements to study or work in nursing. And the USA's nursing governing body. as well as housing etc.

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:

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.
