Becoming a registered nurse in the United States could be a complicated task for many people. However, I’ve learned how to successfully navigate the equivalency process when I moved to the U.S.A from France.
While living in France, I worked as a geriatric nurse and owned a lucrative business focusing on geriatric care. Several years ago, I moved to the United States. As a busy mother and wife, I passed the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination).
In addition, I have extensively dealt with CGFNS (Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools) along with the Board of Nursing in a variety of States. Here in the U.S., I have worked in a thriving career as a registered nurse.
Now, I am ready to help others navigate this seemly impossible journey. Have hope because it is possible!
