Quote from nikks
Ravneet, thanks a lot..How long BSN takes to finish?
Can u suggest any university (ofcouse good but cheap)?
What kind of exams do I need to clear before applying for Addmission and Visa?
nikks, the sole criteria of granting u a student visa(f1) would be an assumption that u won't stay in US after u finish ur studies. if u plan to come here for nursing, these are the facts that wud work against u-
-> nursing is very cheap/affordable in india, so why US?
-> with an impending shortage of nurses in US and high pay scales, why shud i believe u wud come back?
this is wat a visa officer wud probably question u, be sure u meet some visa counseller, or prepare compelling answers to these questions.
that aside, i am not sure which schools are the best, but i wud look for u. gimme a day or two. where i live (philadelphia), temple univ. is good and affordable. BSN=4yrs.
u dont need any tests like GRE for admission, u might require SAT i am not sure, u wud have to refer to each school's admission requirements. TOEFL wud definately be required.
if you are wondering how i got the F1 visa, well i came here to do master's after doing engg. in india. jobs were scarce here, so i switsched to nursing after a year.
pm me for more queries.
