I have my both my BA and MA in anthropology. I have a strong interest in medical anthropology and transcultural nursing, which is why I decided to become a registered nurse. Originally, I wanted to complete a BA/BS to BSN program but was unable to as a result of geographic location and available funds. I completed my Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) and am now a cardiac step-down nurse.
I am also an Italian citizen with an EU passport that I recently acquired through Italy's Dual Citizenship Program. As a result of my anthropology background, I also speak (Latin American) Spanish (fluently) and French (nearing fluency).
1) I want to live and work in the EU (preferably in one of the better paying countries). I understand that there is a preference for EU citizens in most countries. Does that still apply to an American trained RN?
2) I understand that for some EU licensing, I would require a BSN (e.g., the UK). Can this be waived if I have other, higher education or must I continue on to get my BSN/MSN?
3) I have been in school for a VERY long time (8 years total between all my degrees) and would like to avoid spending a lot more time and money on formal education. If I were to have to obtain my BSN, what are some of the shortest online programs that I could complete?
Thank you for your help!
