To seize these opportunities, the nursing graduates have to sit for the exams conducted by respective governments. For example, those who would like to settle in USA shall clear the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX -RN) conducted by the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Schools (CGFNS). Likewise, those who are interested in Canada shall clear Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE).
Besides these countries, Gulf nations are also recruiting Indian nurses in a big number. The nursing graduates with mastery over English language can easily find the foreign opportunities. In US, they can get a monthly salary of US $ 5,000.
Besides the opportunities, the profession also gives a lot of job satisfaction.
