    Hi,

    I am trying to reorganize my papers, before I start school tomorrow, and found an e-mail about www.iefa.org You may want to look in there. It seems to be for foreign students who want to study in the US.

    Also, look into www.discovernursing.com and www.rn.ca.gov
    if there's any info for you in one of these websites.

    Least expensive courses are in community colleges for associate degree programs; but I don't know how it works for non-residents.

    For scholarships, you generally have to be a permanent resident or a citizen I think, but there may be something else for foreigners too? It may be feasible to get a loan to study for your BSN, and to reimburse after you finish your studies; or better have the employer cover part or the entirety of the loan when you're hired as an RN. Working while studying for the BSN should be challenging, but may be OK, I don't know.

    I know there is something going on to bring foreign students to study nursing here in the States, but can't remember what the web site was.

    Bringing yourself and your family to live here would require adaptation among other things. A lot of people do not adapt that easily. I was lucky to travel all the time as a young age, but I still had an adaptation period of 2 years after I came to the States. I've met a lot of foreigners, who said they did not really like it here, but some do. I think that it's harder for adults to get used to a different culture than their own. I guess it depends on individuals.

    Take care
