European standard nurse degree to the USA


  • Specializes in ICU/cardiothoracic-neurosurgery. Has 10 years experience.

Hi All,

I am a European Nurse (Hungarian) with EU 77/453, 80/155, 2005/36/EC  directive degree and have been working in the UK as a registered nurse.

I am planning to move to the USA since my husband got a job there. I have read many topics, websites, forums, etc about it. I am getting to understand the process to become an RN. However, I have not found any information about the degree I have. the EU 77/453, 80/155, 2005/36/EC standard 4 years European Union nurse degree. Has somebody gotten full acceptance from CGFNS with this degree? Or definitely need to take courses to fulfill the gap before I can seat an NCLEX exam? I really want to know that before I start the process. 

Thank you for your help.
