New to this place so please be gentle. Im not sure if there is an answer to my question but I wondered whether the massed brain power here might be able to help. I qualified as a RN in the uk back in 1990 and worked for the next 15 years in England, mainly in critical care. I then took five years out to look after my children and would like to start my career up again. I am now a permanent resident of Wisconsin but the bad news is my RN license to practice in the uk has lapsed. I could renew if I travelled back to the uk and completed a Return to Practice course but this would take me away from family here for 20 weeks ().
My question is, does anyone know of a way I could renew my uk license to practice here in the usa? If I could present all the evidence of my prior learning and experience, is there an organisation that would accept that and let me renew as an american
I know it's a long shot but I would be grateful for any and all advice.
