Hi, my name is Valentina and I'm trying to be certified in California as a registered nurse, who has a BSN and Master's Degree from the universita degli studi di Padova and Trieste, respectively.
I would like to know if there are any Italian Educated Nurses working in America? I'm having a very difficult time in Italy having my degree evaluated and sent to CGFNS'ORG, because the Italian system is either stubborn and closed, or simply doesn't know how to adopt the university Credit system or ECTS to the American system. They won't even estimate. It's caused a rift now, and my life is on the line. My husband is American, but is disabled, so I'm the bread winner. However, neither he nor his entire family, have ever seen an Italian Educated In their extensive treatment history.
Will I be the first?
Let me know please. Any help or advice is sincerely appreciated.
