I also became a registered nurse in another country. At first, I worked in Germany, but then I moved to the USA and had to re-qualify. I wanted to work in a wonderful seniors shelter Assisted Living | SeniorSite because I love talking to and caring for the elderly. But since there are registered nurses here, I needed to get a CNA. Nursing training programs include both theoretical classes and practical clinical experience. It was quite hard, but I managed, and I have been working in Regency Retirement Village for a year now.
