USCDP Online Orientation | Kickstart Your US Career

October 21, 2020  |  Unistaff

USCDP Orientation article header

The United States Candidate Development Program (USCDP) online orientation was designed especially for aspiring US Registered Nurses like you. In one session you will gain a better understanding of the US application process. It covers the initial steps to apply, the tests required, tips on securing the best opportunities and even the more complex immigration processes. You will learn about the different deployment options and get a glimpse of the onboarding once you’ve successfully made it to the US. 


The global COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown has resulted in the largest work from home experiment. We had no idea it would last this long, and clearly it’s not over yet. The need to ensure public health and safety has made it absolutely essential to move everything we do online. And that includes online learning. With everyone stuck at home, schools, universities, various institutions, and companies have adapted to the remote way of getting things done online. Whether it is providing a service or delivering information and physical goods, it’s all facilitated online.

As an agency, we at Universal Staffing (UNISTAFF) strive to continue providing assistance and helpful information despite the ongoing health crisis. The opportunities for overseas work are still growing. And people haven’t stopped dreaming of migrating to work abroad. Thus, we will continue to deliver the services needed to match qualified candidates with their future job roles, one way or another. 

The Transition to Online 

USCDP Orientation Sample Classes

In our decades of industry experience, we have found orientations to be an excellent venue to convey important information with regards to working overseas and all the processes required to get there. In the past, we used to conduct several in-person events at our offices as well as tours to different cities in the Philippines to meet aspiring candidates and speak about the latest career opportunities in the USA

Since it is not safe right now to venture out or gather in large groups, we adapted in response to dynamic circumstances and have moved all our orientations online. This gives tremendous flexibility for attendees and opens up a more convenient way to attend sessions. Anyone, anywhere in the word can join without any hassles, delays or risk of exposure to sickness. 

Despite the lockdown constraints, access to the updated and correct information is at your fingertips. Wherever you are located in the world, all you need is your mobile phone or computer and a decent Internet connection and you’re all set to join the orientation!
