Hi Everyone,

I am an LPN working in acute care in Alberta Canada, and work to full scope of practice. I am halfway in the BN program with Athabasca University, but my timeline has increased- thanks to the Corona virus.

My fiance lives in US and I wondered if I would get schools there that would take my credits from Athabasca without having to start the program all over again.

Or should I just stick it out, finish the program and write the NCLEX in Canada- it would take another year.

Anyone with insight on this, please share. Thank you.

Very hard to move credits from one university to another never mind adding another country to the equation. All you can do is ask around the areas you are looking to live in
