I want to go back to school to get my BSN but I'm running into the problem that colleges/universities won't accept my German schooling. I went to nursing school
in Germany, got a nursing diploma there and worked for about 2 years before we moved to the US. CA doesn't require me to go through a third party (like CGFNS) to evaluate my German schooling - the Board of Nursing does it themself. I passed the NCLEX and got my CA RN license. Worked for a couple months before we moved to VA. I can't just apply for licensure by endorsement to get my VA license, since VA requires me to have a language test and an evaluation (through CGFNS) of my schooling done before they consider me for licensure by endorsement.
Universities seem to do the same. I tried to apply to Grand Canyon University, but they also wanted an evaluation of my credentials. My nursing school is a pain in the .... and I probably won't get immediate help in filling out the required paperwork.
I can wait on my VA license, but I thought I can work on my BSN in the meantime.
Anyone knows of a RN to BSN program who either does the evaluation of a foreign nursing degrees themselves or do not care since I have a US license?
Thanks for your answers!
