  1. Hi there, Just found this site while searching net, and was wondering if anyone can help me. I am regiostered in uk as an RMN( State Registered Mental Nurse) and also registered in the Republic of Ireland, I am looking to move to the US after I enjoyed an extended holiday in New York lastyear of 4 months, I have been told that my qualifications are not recognised in New York so can someone tell me where they are recognised, or where I can find out. Thanks

    Hi Jim,
    I just discovered this forum today and am also an RMN..

    I know California and Florida accept our RMNs..Are you on part 3 or 13 of the Register though??
    There are a few more states that take RMNs but only part 13..I am traditionally trained so only 2 would take me..

    LOL Just read your profile..Very similar to mine...Are we twins..I worked in London for 6 years in both acute and forensic (NHS, Courts and Prison) Then I met my scottish husband..

    Hi go to the international nursing forum and read the threads that are posted there you may find your ans.
    If you trained in Ireland was that as a RN or have you always been RMN
