Am I an RN with experience, a New Grad, or something else?


Specializes in spinal rehab.

Does anyone know what category I would fall under to a hospital and the recruiters? Here are my details:

Bachelors in Nursing (4 year degree) from Ireland

5 years experience (3 in Ireland and 2 in Australia)

Passed Nclex very recently

Have not worked in US but do have a GA licence (currently looking for work)

NB. Permanent resident of USA


I know someone with a similar experience. She was a nurse for 7 years in China. But when she came to Georgia, she had to take the NCLEX. Then she got hired and was required to complete a re-entry program (for RNs who have been away from nursing for a few years). So, she was considered an experienced RN.

smn2010, BSN, RN

Specializes in Psychiatric Nurse. Has 10 years experience.
