I am a Brazilian Nurse who lives and works in Germany. I work as a Pediatric nurse in one semi-intensive neonatal care unit. I graduated in Brazil in 2016, however, I did part of my university degree at KSU (Spring and Fall 2015). I would like to know it would be possible for me to find a job here in the USA. Ideally, I'd like to work in Atlanta. Could you provide some advice and direction on how I might go about doing this?

I am 44 years old and I studied modern languages in college a long time ago. The only jobs I had were translation and localization testing. The pay was quite low. I now have kids and my husband is the only one working. I have his and my family's support to study something new that will help me secure a good job and good income, and also something I enjoy.
