hello;

I'm a Nurse anesthetist from Africa/Cameroon, graduated in 2016 from Bangangte School of Health, with 9 years work experience as Registered Nurse. I arrived USA 4months ago and will like to pursue my new professional career here in USA/Minnesota where I presently reside. I read online about RN-NCLEX but did not know if it is possible to apply to CRNA-NCLEX without being a license USA RN.

Thanks

All advanced practice roles in the US require that individuals be licensed as generalist RNs in addition to their advanced practice licensure or certification, and maintain ongoing RN licensure.
