I am a Finn. I got both of my degrees from US bachelor of nursing and bachelor of health science in community health. Now I am in Finland trying to figure out how to best use my nursing degree which I earned in US. According to National Medical Affairs in Finland there is not any agreements between Finland and US that registered nurse who earned they degree in US can work in Finland. If I would have earned my degrees from any European country the degree would have been completly transferable.
The National Authority of Medical Affairs advised me to contact nursing schools
to see how my degree transfers. Nursing schools in Finland fucntion independently from each other therefore I was informed to contact the closest school where I would most likely complete the classes which were till necessary in order to get a nursing license. I contacted the Kymeenlaakson Ammattikorkeakoulu but they have never dealt with this kind of situation before so I did not get very far.
Has anyone been in this same situation before? Anyone who has studied in US and then gone back to their home county either in Finland or any other scandinavian country? Or does anyone know which European country accepts best nurses who have gained their eduction in US.
Any input is appreciated. Thank you.
