About The Program
A U.S. nursing career offers rich rewards to experienced nurses: a career filled with challenge and endless opportunities to master new clinical skills, explore a new country, and earn exceptional pay and benefits.
When you join the Assignment America family, we become a part of your future. It's a responsibility we take seriously, so you can rely on us to help you make an informed decision.
Why Assignment America?
As an affiliate of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc., one of the largest healthcare staffing companies in the United States, Assignment America draws on more than 40 years of experience, and relationships with 80% of the country's top hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and health care facilities. Our strength and experience enable us to place our nurses in positions that advance their professional development while enriching their personal lives.
As an international nurse, working in different clinical settings with a variety of patient care delivery systems will make you more marketable, whether you continue your career with us after your assignment or return to your home country.
What is the program all about?
We'll tell you about the process, and what to expect from your assignments in America. We've also spotlighted some of America's most beautiful regions, to give you an idea of the places you'll see and the things you'll do during your free time. We know the questions you really want to ask: Will I thrive in America, personally as well as professionally ? What is it like to start over in a new country? Getting the answers to these questions is as much a part of the process as taking the NCLEX and obtaining your green card.
Is it right for me?
Only you can answer that, but we've provided comprehensive program information to help you make the right decision. Interested nurses go through an application and screening process to determine their eligibility. If they meet the criteria, they're invited to view an online presentation, and then interview with Assignment America. Acceptance of an offer to join the program is the first step in a process that takes up to 14 months. Too lengthy? Not if you consider it an investment in your future.
