Moved to the International forum

There are a couple of forums you may want to check out however the biggest hurdle will be to meet state requirements, pass NCLEX and then find a employer willing to file a visa for you enabling you to work in the US

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) - Nursing for Nurses

Critical Care Nursing - Nursing for Nurses

If you are just looking at doing your masters you will still in most cases I have seen have to be registered as a RN and passed NCLEX. Then if you are going as a student the next hurdle would be finding a course that meets the full time criteria of the student visa and having the funds to support yourself

Welcome to allnurses! :balloons:

Most MSN programs in the US (all except for the "direct entry" programs for non-nurses) require that you be a licensed RN. Many also require that you have some minimum amount of clinical experience as an RN.

In order to be eligible for RN licensure in the US, your education in Libya will have to be equivalent to the minimum requirements for registered nurse education in the US (specifically, in whatever US state you are applying to for licensure). Different countries use different models of nursing education, and nursing educations don't always transfer smoothly or easily from one country to another. Once you have some idea of what US state you might want to be in, you can check the website of that state's Board of Nursing to see what the process and requirements are to apply for licensure as a foreign graduate.

CRNA programs in the US are particularly competitive -- it's very hard to get accepted to one, because so many people are trying to get into them. I don't know anything about AA programs, but, if it turns out you are going to have difficulty getting licensed as an RN here, that may be an option for you.

Best wishes!
