I'm having a really hard time finding the information I'm looking for from looking at registration sites for various countries, so I'm hoping someone here can help. I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree in a non-nursing field and looking to go into nursing, and eventually the nurse practitioner route. I'm looking into accelerated programs, anywhere from 1-2 years, but I do not want to limit international opportunities in the future by doing so. Does anyone know the requirements for licensure outside the US? Specifically I'm looking at Canada, Australia, NZ, and the UK. Will I be shooting myself in the foot if I do a 1 year degree? 2 years?
