Hi everyone,I'm a newly graduated nursing student and a U.S. citizen who studied in the Philippines. My home state is Illinois but they will not allow me to return and practice as a nurse unless I have a license from the country I was educated in. The Philippines will not give me a license because I'm not a Filipino citizen. So, my next step is to go to Montana and work there as a nurse for a few years.While working, I plan to take up my master's degree to further my education but also in the hopes that such a degree will make me eligible to be licensed in Illinois and I can finally go back home. Does anyone know if this is possible?
