    thanks alot 4 ur help

    In Egypt , MSN is the broadest and most qualified field in nursring , most of the nurses are either working in it or willing to , MSN is apparent and magnified most in critical care settings , i'm working in critical care for about 4 years tell today, 2 yrs in neonatal icu and 2 yrs in adult icu.
    I know neonatal icu i quit different than what is meant by MSN , but it made me more meticulous and sensitive at my work in adult icu, it learns you to take care of the details and small things related to your patient
    In egypt we got used to be responsible for 2-3 critical cases at same time , that makes us dynamic more than u imagin.

    critical care nurses in egypt are considered the most skillful and knowledgable in all nurses

    i want to ask how to get special visa?
    It sounds to me like the OP is using "MSN" as an abbreviation for "medical-surgical nursing" rather than "Master's of Science in Nursing" degree. I'm not sure everyone's talking about the same thing here ...

    So most of the nurses have completed their BSN ( University) and gone on to complete their Masters Degree which is 5-6 years after high school.
    yah exactly.
    but actually the work field demands nurses more than available by several folds ,so working at private hospital is better paying than a university job .

    What is meant by general education is history, philosophy, humanities, and courses that don't necessarily apply to your major. That's why it's referred to as "general education". Here in the US they apparently want us to be well rounded people. That's the reason why it sometimes takes people longer than 4 years to complete a BSN. Here our ASN is a 4 year program. It's usually 2 years in prerequisites and general education and then another 2 years in the nursing program.
    aha i got it
    actually we got only one subject [social science] in the first year , then all job related after that ,even these subject i think is job related to

    What was your nurse education like? Did you have structured clinical and theory hours in areas like Midwifery/Obstetrics, Mental health, Paeds as well as general adult? That is what is going to be looked at when you apply to a state and meet their requirements for foreign trained nurse
