I am a registered nurse in Australia, having studied a three year Bachelor of Nursing.
I am aware that nursing licence in the United States varies from state to state and is again different in Canada however I wonder if this issue might apply to all states.
In Australia we do not study maternity/midwifery/labour and delivery as a part of our degrees (as there is a separate degree for midwifery). However I believe in the US and Canada this is all included in the four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
Is this area of study essential under the education requirements for nursing licensure in the United States and / or Canada?
Thanks for your input
