Default UK to US nursing

Hello everyone!

Brief synopsis:
I'm a UK trained nurse BSc (Adult). I had my GC interview yesterday and now I'm looking to start the really long process of (hopefully) gaining US registration. I'm aware that I'll be deficient in Paeds, Obs, and Mental Health. I have tried REPEATEDLY to get through to the M.D. Board of Nursing to get advice re: procedures in gaining US registration. To date, I have been told (by one oerson) there's nothing I can do except do a four year degree here. All emails and voicemail messages have yet to be responded too, sadly.

Could anyone please advise if this sounds correct? Or, could anyone offer advise where or whom I should contact in the first instance.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Not many nursing schools in the US take students just to make certain hours up. There are a few schools in California that offer courses for International nurses but you would need to check if MD state BON accept the courses. Even then there is a long waiting list as well as expense
