hey, i am a mental health (psychiatric) nursing student in the UK. i intend to work in the USA after my course. i have just been told by a friend that mental health nurses who trained in the UK cant work in the USA because there are differences in the way america psychiatric nurses are trained. an example being that all america psychiatric nurses are General nurses before studying to be psychiatric nurses and also america psychiatric nurses are allowed to prescribe medication. is this true????? cant i work in america after my course?????
