Practice Medicine in USA with Green Card
I have been getting multiple requests from around the world about programs for physicians that wish to go thru a nursing program that is accepted in the US. This one meets the requirements of CGFNS, as well as US immigration. It is an accelerated one year program.
The clinicals, as well as theory hours, meet the requirements for all states in the US.
Any other information about their program will need to come from them.

That program is not accepted in all states in the US, and that means that you may not be able to work where you later wish to. Would not recommend a program for anyone that cannot be used in all fifty states.
Never have and never will.
It also makes it at the whim of the US State Dept if they will grant a visa based on that since the required time in class is not met. With things getting to be the way that they are with immigration, you want an approved program for all states.
I have been looking for the criteria by which these programs are evaluated. I have not been able to find anything. Do you have any information you can share reagrding this? What are the specifics of the curriculum? I have seen programs that are one year and those that are one and a half years, both have been accepted. Where do you find information regarding the individual state boards and their requirements? How many state boards of nursing would you say accept the Excelsior program? Would it not be possible to endorse into another state once this MD-RN has practised in a state that accepts the Excelsior program after a certain period of time?
