Hi was just looking for some information. I am a general trained nurse and my husband has his RN BSC in psychiatric nursing (4 years degree). I am a us citizen and we were looking for information if he would be allowed to work in the US? What he would have to do to work in PA? Or any knowledge of Irish psychiatric nurses in America?

There are no Psychiatric nurses in the US. You need to be generally trained and have completed theory and clinical hours in adult, peds, OB/gyn and mental health nursing.
