    Bit confused, you say she is a nurse but has no theory, most courses I know off covers both theory and practical. Can you give a bit more information.

    Have moved to International forum more information there for you to read.

    I'm thinking of, she takes medicine after finishing her nursing course. I don't know is it possible to do that straight without taking another course? Moreover, how is medicine? Doctors, what advices can you give me to my sister? Thanks,

    I think you can use nursing a pre-med since it has the general sciences too plus anatomy. IS this accurate suzzane4?

    any four years science courses can be pre-med.

    A four year degree that has the required pre-reqs in it can be accepted for medical school, and that is another four year program.

    Going thru nursing school, or medical school does not get automatic approval for a green card in the US. The only way that she can get a job in the US is if she meets the requirements first for licensure, and then needs to be able to get a visa. There is a retrogression currently in place so it is quite hard to say when things will open up.

    And as others have mentioned, not sure how she has done the clinical part of her training, but not the theory; is she actually in a school of nursing? The US actually requires that the theory and clinical hours be done at the same time, they do not accept one done without the other.

    What are you actually looking for? there are some distant learning but usually for nurses already qualified ie Coronary heart disease, Diabetes COPD and Asthma

    Is your sister actually a licensed RN in some country? Hard to determine with what you have been posting.
