- 2Jan 25 by Fiona59What visa do you plan on using to enter the US?
There is a huge waitlist for greencards and no shortage of US educated nurses looking for their first job. Hiring preferences always go to locally educated new grads.
You need to do a lot more research.
- 0Jan 25 by Ginger's MomQuote from JustBeachyNurseI thought so too, but the university web site statesHow is an overseas program accredited by a US accreditation agency? That makes no sense whatsoever
"The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (BSN) and the MSN program
are registered by the Department of Education of New York State, HEGIS codes 1203.00 and
1203.10, respectively. The BSN and MSN programs are accredited by CCNE, the Commission on
Collegiate Nursing Education, in the USA. AUB School of Nursing is the first School of Nursing
outside the US territories to be accredited by CCNE."
Also listed in the CCNE web site
My guess is they are copying foreign medical schools who use this venue to assist students to get approval for licensing.
