American diploma nurse with British BSc

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I have a silly question. I am an American nurse working in the UK. I obtained my diploma in nursing from a USA school and then moved to the UK shortly after. While I have been in England I have completed a bachelors degree in health and social care practice. This is their equivilant to a BSN.

    Would I still be considered a diploma nurse in the USA and not a BSN when I move back? Obviously I will put BSc in Health and social care practice on my resume and NOT BSN but I am wondering if I can apply for jobs that say "BSN nurses only" since I do have a degree in nursing practice?
