AUST RN seeking NYC registration...eek!Register Today!
- by trickstar Aug 12, '12Hello everybody- long time follower, first time posting.
I hope i have the right forum here, im an Australian trained registered nurse wanting some advise on applying for licensure in NYC.
I have two lil questions:::
- Do i need paediatrics & obstetrics to be considered for licensure? I basically donít want to be spending $$$ on CGFNS (using the form specific to NYC) to be told by BON NYC that im not eligible without these quals.
- Are there any states that donít require paediatrics & obstetrics to gain licensure/registration?

All US states require nurses to be generalist trained with theory and clinical in adults, geriatrics, mental health/psych, pediatrics, and OB/women's health. The NY Dept of Education/board of nursing specifies that the nursing education must be a general nursing education (as opposed to the specialty nursing education (pediatrics, adult, learning disabilities, etc.) offered in the UK and some other countries.
"To meet the professional education requirement for licensure as a registered professional nurse, you must present satisfactory evidence of having received at least a two-year degree or diploma from a program in general professional nursing that is acceptable to the Department." source: NYS Nursing:License Requirements
