I have joined this forum to see if anyone can help me with a few questions I have about nursing in the US.
I believe that there are various stages to nurse qualification in the us, i.e. LPN, RN, etc etc.
I would like to work in the US particularly in nursing but I believe that LPN are 'licensed'? I have looked around various sites to see if I could possibly study there but I am rather older than the average student and am not sure whether I would be accepted.
There seems to be millions of colleges, univesities and it is a mind boggling!
Does anyone have any useful information as I am very confused with all the data available on the internet, can a foreign student actually work whilst studying? If I came on a work visa would I be able to study in order to get a licence, I realise that my spelling
of various words are different to the american spelling so hope you will bear with me on that one.
I am not a qualified nurse but have 8/9 years as an Auxilliary Nurse, that is similar to the LPN but does not need a licence to work/practice.
Any advice gratefully accepted.
