I am an currently an LPN going to school for my BSN, I finish this December and I would like to go work in South Africa when I'm done. First of all are American BSN's recognized in South Africa, second what's the process of getting a license from The South African Nursing Council, the website doesn't give very good instructions. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

My first thought is Why? The crime rate (both personal and against property) is sky high and only expected to get worse.

I agree with Fiona59. Here in DRC I work with paramedics from SA and they tell me the same story: pay isn't good, crime rate is straight horrendous, life expensive and getting worse if you got kids. Schoolsystem is going down the drain in the public sector, semi-private scools are expensive and private schools are REALLY expensive in regard to what you earn as a nurse. Corruption is rife throughout all levels of the public sector...
I'd be you, I'd give some REALLY serious thought about emigrating there, despite the country being marvelous for a lot of other reasons, first of all it being Africa.
Just wondering if you ever went through with the process of becoming a nurse in South Africa. If so, how? Currently considering doing the same. Thanks!
