TOEFL vs IELTS

  1. Hi everyone! I am planning to go to crna school within the next 2 years so I wanna know as early as now the things i need to do to qualify. i had my BSN overseas, I took the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) about 6 years ago since it was needed for me to come and work in the US as an RN. I know most schools require students who studied outside the US to take TOEFL so my question is: Will they accept IELTS instead? i know I can just call up the schools, but i though i'd ask here first. Anybody out there who has/had the same situation i have? thanks.

    They may accept IELTS, but since yours is over 2 years old they will most likely not accept it...

    I know this was from a few years ago but did you ever apply for CRNA? I'm also a foreign grad and am interested in the program.

    It depends on the school....At my school they want you to take at least 30 credits of course work in a US college instead of taking TOEFL / IELTS.
