    The NP is an Advanced Practice RN, and is recognized in some countries, depending on their requirements.

    For Advanced Practice nurses wishing to work in the US as NPs, they are required to have an MSN...........and meet requirements for licensure in the US first as an RN.

    Would be similar in the other countries that accepted the NP role.
