For Students considering a U.S. Nursing Career
In the United States, The National Council of State Boards of Nursing is the governing body that sets the standards for obtaining licensure to practice as a nurse. Guidelines are in place that is used to determine if licensure should be granted to individuals. The licensure process includes determination that an individual meets the necessary qualifications to practice.
The licensure requirements differ from state to state. For that reason, we suggest that you contact the Board of Nursing in the state where you wish to practice to verify its licensure requirements.
CGFNS International is an organization recognized by The National Council of State Boards of Nursing as an authority on credentials evaluation pertaining to the education, registration and licensure of nurses and other health care professionals worldwide. To begin the licensure process in the United States you should visit their website.
It is also necessary to obtain a visa (temporary or permanent) in order to legally work in the United States. Detailed information regarding visa applications and policies should be obtained from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You may check their web site.
Once the credentialing process is completed, we recommend that you attend a NCLEX® Review course with Americas Empowerment Institute.
