Hello, I have a 4 year BSN in Nursing from a university in the USA. I am registered with a state board of nursing in the USA.
I also have a masters degree in Psychiatric and mental health nursing. I am also a licensed Family Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with the ANCC.
I am having difficulty registering with the NMC, for RN1(Adult Nursing) and RN3 (Mental Health Nursing).
They are having particular difficulty understanding that nurses in the USA who are qualified to work in mental health Are not registered separately as a Mental Health RN. They are also having problem recognising the license issued by the ANCC.
Are there any nurses from the USA who have successfully registered with the NMC for RN3 (Mental health nursing)? Could you please offer any advise on how one could have an american University BSN and RN registration recognised for mental health nursing ?
Are there any American trained Nurse Practitioners with a ANCC certification who has gotten any recognition of this from the NMC ? If so could you please provide any information on how you did this?
I am finding the NMC staff very rude, incompetent, and providing misleading information (I have spoken to different members of staff and I have gotten different responses on the same issue). I have been trying for over 4 months and I am still not getting anywhere!
