My name is Carmen, I live in upstate NY and I have a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science from an International University. I'm considering going back to school here in the States to get a degree in Nursing. I found several community colleges offering nursing programs
where, for instance,
"Graduates of this program are granted an Associate in Applied Science degree by the college and are eligible to take the National Comprehensive Licensing Examination in Nursing for Registered Nurses (R.N.)" or another where "Graduates earn a two-year associate's in science degree and are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Exam required for licensure as a RN."
My question is: how do you compare this degree (AAS) to ADN? Can a non-permanent resident (like myself) get a job in the US with such a degree (AAS in Nursing) and eventually get the green-card?
Many thanks in advance,
