US citizen graduated from BSN in another country

  1. I was wondering if I can join the Navy Nurse Corps even though I'm a foreign educated graduate from the Philippines. Even though I'm a US citizen. I was enlisted in the US Navy before as Corpsmen. Thanks

    I can't see why not if you're a USC.

    You will need to speak with a recruiter to see if the university that you graduated from is acceptable. If it is should be no problem.

    Hey there! I am also a graduate of nursing from the Philippines and I'm also interested in joining the navy. I've passed the NCLEX already from CALI state. I just got here last Sept and I still don't have a job so maybe I can try the navy? Any info on navy nurse?

    I believe for all branches of the military, the BSN degree must be accredited by a US accreditation commission or agency -- CCNE or NLNAC. Contact a recruiter to be sure. Good luck!
