    Hi! I am from Mexico as well and am interested in finding out how far you are able to advance as a nurse there....what are the different levels. My cousin is a doctor in Mexico City and it he seemed very surprised at what I am able to do.

    There are 4 different types of advanced practice nurses here. These nurses are able to diagnose, treat, and prescribe here. Some states allow us to practice completely independently, while others require physician oversight or collaboration. If you want to find out more about each type, you can search them.

    1) Nurse practitioner
    2) Clinical Nurse Specialist
    3) Nurse Anesthetist
    4) Nurse Midwife

    There is way too much information to put into a single post.
