We bought our house because in just two years with PassportUSA because we were already sure that we are not moving anywhere and we are staying here for good. We visited all the popular states here in the US and this is really the home for us so I’m very thankful that PassportUSA sent me and my family here. I want to recognize my PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor,  Ashley, for guiding me all the way from the beginning of my contract until the end. It was a bumpy ride as expected but with hard work and by doing what you’re supposed to do as an employee, being a caring nurse to your patient, everything turned out well for me.”

PassportUSA RN Alinafe: Living the American Dream

Passing the NCLEX exam proves that you’re committed to achieving your #AmericanDream. The next step is finding a reputable agency to help secure your employment-based U.S. immigrant visa or recapture your existing priority date.

PassportUSA has expertly handled thousands of international nurse immigration cases. The PassportUSA Achieve program offers immigration filing services and test preparation resources to help you pass IELTS.

Here’s Alinafe’s story of how the PassportUSA Achieve program helped her attain her EB-3 visa and a nursing career in the USA.

Alinafe’s Opportunistic USRN Career

Alinafe joined the PassportUSA Achieve program and has been working as a USRN since May 2019. When we spoke with Alinafe regarding her experiences, here is what she shared:

How did you hear about the Achieve program?

“I first heard of PassportUSA through a Facebook advertisement and was planning on finding an international staffing agency so I can work as a USRN. I was glad to see that PassportUSA offers the Achieve program and that I was eligible to join the program.”

What made you decide to join the Achieve program?

“I decided to join the Achieve program because of the opportunities that can come out of it. I would be able to learn different nursing skills in a different country, make more than what I was currently making in Malawi, and have the ability to bring my family here with me.”

What kind of training did you utilize to pass IELTS?

“I took online courses and studied on my own. If you have not passed IELTS yet, PassportUSA will provide candidates in their Achieve program with free IELTS resources and a dedicated coach.”

What training did you utilize to pass NCLEX?

“I took in-person classes every week along with practice test books. You have to remain dedicated and determined to study and pass the NCLEX.”

Would you recommend other nurses to sign up for Achieve right away?

“Yes, of course, I recommend other nurses to sign up for the Achieve program right away because PassportUSA will give you all of the support you need. If you passed the NCLEX, I absolutely urge you to join PassportUSA. You will be successful for IELTS and the more people in this program, the merrier!”

How did you feel the response time was for your inquiries regarding the program?

“PassportUSA has the best advisors possible. I give them an A+. Every time I sent in a question, they responded within a business day. They will acknowledge my question and let me know that they will get me the answer soon.”

What/who inspired you to pursue your American Dream?

“My children inspired me to pursue my American Dream. There were times when the poverty level was very high in Malawi, Africa, and the American Dream is very promising to me and my family to do better for my family. My children encouraged me to study for NCLEX and apply to the program so we can all go to America. They continue to inspire me in many ways and I don’t know if I’ll ever thank them enough.”

How has your family’s life changed for the better now that you’ve been working as a U.S. nurse?

“We have good healthcare, nice housing, efficient transportation, and overall a better quality of life. I purchased a brand new car and it is very reliable and can get to and from places. I’m doing really well at work and I have more autonomy and responsibilities. Here there are more personalized experiences for 1:1 patient care and it is organized so I can see progress with my patients and build a better rapport with them. My work/life balance is very manageable.”

What do you hope to accomplish in your U.S. nursing career and personal life within 5 years?

“I am an overachiever. I would love to obtain my Master of Nursing degree and Doctorate of Nursing Practice because knowledge is power. If I have more knowledge, I can do a lot. I know I can do more as a nurse. I am precepting soon and I’m very honored and proud that they asked me to do so.”

What are the three qualities of yours that make you a good U.S. nurse?

” I am a self-starter, hard-working, and a quick learner. and I’m able to own up to my responsibilities and learn from my experiences. I am a hard-working spirit to put in extra hours to achieve what my unit needs because it’s not always about me and about my units and patients, more efficient with more practices

Who/what motivates you currently to continue being a spectacular U.S. nurse?

“My motivation is the team that I work with. We have a strong work ethic, and are able to help each other. I came here as a hard-working nurse when others are motivated to do the same. I want to continue raising the bar by attending available training and bringing the knowledge back to my unit to benefit us all.”

What advice do you have for candidates that are thinking about joining the program?

“Join the program! I encourage candidates to study hard and sign up with PassportUSA if you need to pass IELTS. You will need to pass the NCLEX first to get into this very good program. It will change your life. It will change your whole nursing career. There is no changing for the worst. You have a support system here. It’s all good and the good outweighs the bad. Understand what your dreams mean to you and what you want for yourself and your family. You will get U.S. nursing transition practice with PassportUSA before you even arrive here.”

Achieve Your #AmericanDream

The Best Opportunity For My Family – Morena, PassportUSA Nurse Alumni

PassportUSA is honored to have employed Morena, a registered nurse, who has now reached the end of her temp-to-perm assignment.

Morena arrived in the U.S. with her husband and two children to achieve a better quality of life. With her American Dream in her grasp, Morena was able to reach her top personal goals of expanding her family and buying her family’s forever home. As the family continues to grow in the house that they absolutely adore, Morena is excited to experience what else the future has in store for them!

“After two years of being employed at this facility, I gave birth to my third child, a baby boy. The most exciting part was that I work in the Labor and Delivery unit and I had the baby here after working my 12-hour shift. My colleagues took good care of me!

Also, after three years of working here, we finally bought our first house ever. We never owned our own house even back in the Philippines. This was a huge accomplishment for us.

I would say that my whole stay here is very much fruitful.”

A Top Performer

While on assignment, Morena was commended for her dedication to patient care and work schedule flexibility. She was always punctual and smiling with her patients. Morena also went above her call of duty by attaining additional certifications to supplement her knowledge such as Fetal Heart monitoring, NRP, BLS, And ACLS certifications.

In her performance review, the facility’s Nurse Manager commented:

“Morena is an excellent nurse. She provides compassionate care to our patients. Morena is flexible and accommodating to our scheduling needs. She is a team player and a hard worker. Morena takes good care of our patients and follows her chain of command if needed. We enjoy Morena on our team!”

Reflecting on Her Journey

“First of all, I would like to thank my friend, Manilen, who referred me to Health Carousel. I was ready to give up on my American dream but thanks to Health Carousel, my visa was recaptured and the rest is history. I would also like to thank the lady from PassportUSA who assisted me and my family during our first week here. Lastly, thanks to my PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor, Ruben, who constantly reminded me of my deadlines and was always available to answer my questions and concerns.

I highly recommend Health Carousel to my friends and family back home. Having this opportunity to work in the United States definitely gave my family good lives and good education to my children. Having better compensation, medical benefits, and free education for my kids are definitely great advantages. I just hope that more Filipinos like me seize this kind of opportunity especially since there is still a big need for USRNs.”

What’s next for Morena?

Morena received a full-time employment offer from the facility, however, she is pursuing other personal priorities. We know she will continue to exceed her employer’s and patients’ expectations wherever she is.


 

I have a favorite bible verse that has helped me throughout my nursing career: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Thank you, Morena! We wish you the best of luck.
