Is Msc Nursing/MPH degree from India Valid in US?

  1. This is important. My friend needs to make a career choice. The matter is,my friend has completed her 4 yr Bsc Nursing and she is thinking to get a masters degree from India(Msc Nursing or MPH) but she is also thinking about moving to US in few years time.
    So, her question is if she gets a master degree(Msc nursing or MPH) from India will that degree be valid in US?
    Will she be able to get a job that matches her qualification?
    What pre-requisites or application/registration process she will need to go through?

    any suggestions or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Please help us with this.
    Thank you in advance.

    It all depends on which state your friend wants to live and practice in. Each state has their requirements and a person must meet that states requirement. They can go through another route and attempt to endorse their license into another state but they must still meet that states requirement. Suggest your friend go to each state boards and read on the requirements and find the state that meets his/her needs. Good Luck
