Hi There, I would like to start a new topic after screening through some of the older posts to search for a similar plight, but in vain.
I am a US residing individual with a BS degree earned outside of US in a non-nursing field wanting to pursue an ABSN program here. I hope I have not put you off already.
I came across a lot of posts which say that they want to get here with their bachelors in nursing but none which would discuss about someone already here with a green card and wanting to pursue a nursing degree. My justification for creating the new topic.
My questions start from:
1) What should be my first step.
2) Since I am willing to relocate to any of the states,which credentialling company is most reliable here and as such is accepted throughout US. How does credentialling help.I am being told that not all schools need the transcripts to be evaluated unless they are in a language other than English.
3) My main cause of worry is the pre-requisites. My Bachelors in Science did not include Biology. When I checked with a community college, I was told that I will first need to complete a general biology class before I take the Anatomy&Physiology class.Is any one aware if this is true. I have studied biology till the high school level.
I have around whooping! 15 pre requisites to satisfy in my state. Any input on how to plan to take the pre-requisites will be greatly appreciated.
I hope I don't sound like a soldier from a lost battle!
Thanking you in advance,
