Default The question around nursing qualification for move to usa

Hi,
I am a uk adult nurse qualified for 13 years and a deputy sister. My husband is American (Washington state) and we have been talking about moving over there in the next 2-3 years. I have been looking into how I can transfer my UK adult Nursing degree to a USA RGN. It would seem that the UK has left us in a difficult position by making us choose our speciality before we start study and in the USA nurses study in the 4 different areas med/surg, paediatric, mental health and obs/gynae.
so before I even think of taking this any further can I ask is there any way around this? I have been in touch with an agency and am waiting to hear back. Again, really not sure just trying to sound things out but I have been in touch with www.health staff.org and nurses4america.com
not sure if these are the best or reputable but I imagine the whole ‘adult Nursing’ issue will come up with them anyway?
any pointers gladly recieved.
many thanks
carly

Why not just look at the state board of nursing website and see what their requirements are and even apply and see what results are from them? Some uk nurses have been lucky getting registered but a lot will depend on your transcripts

Hi Silverdragon,
I did get in touch with the board of nursing where I am thinking we will move to. They sent me the requirements. It does ask for clinical hours in those 4 areas so I think I won’t meet the requirement. I also do have all my nursing transcripts on me so I can check that too but not too sure what exactly I would be looking for.

Your transcripts should have your training broken down into sections like Paeds, Mental Health, Obstetrics and Adult with further breakdown into clinical and theory hours
