uk psychiatric nurse wants to train in florida

  1. I hope someone can help me. I know my R.M.N. is not recognised in the States. So, I've decided to take the plungeand train in the US if possible. Somewhere on this board was a nurse who has been awarded scholarship by a hospital to undertake her training and has also offered her a job at the end of her training. I'm getting lost around the discussion board and can't even get acces to the chat rooms. It has taken me nearly a month to find out that my R.M.N. isn't recognised in the States, so I hope someone in here can help me before I need psychiatric help myself. I qualified in 1989. Have an advanced diploma in nursing. As well as 15 years experience as a qualified nurse, nealry 20 as nurse.

    I am not 100% sure but there might be a possability of undertaking just the training you need in other areas to upgrade your RMN to RGN. Suzanne4 offer excellent advise. I saw your question on the UK forum and you can send PM to whoever you want to talk to by clicking on their name.

    Hope this helps

    The program that I believe you are talking about is called Arlington University. I wouldn't trust them with a ten foot pole...............Why would they only pay for further training for a foreign trained nurse and not an American nurse? No one has been able to say that they actually attended or know of anyone that has actually attended the program.

    Their website looks great, but no substance to it. They are in California but are not recognized by California Board of Nursing. They want you to already be a nurse in your country and come to the US for additional training. You need to be able to get a US license right away for California. :uhoh21:
