  • Completed BSc in Nursing from India and want to talk about future options.

    Hi,

    I am Anjali. I have completed my BSc from a reputed college in India and want to explore future opportunities regarding my course. I want to do Msc in Psychiatric Nursing. The problem is that I am confused whether I should do it from India or Abroad. Also, if I do it from India, will I be eligible to work in the United States?
    Furthermore, if I do my Msc from USA, is there any scope for me to come back to India and continue my job in India?

    I would be indebted to you if you could help me with this situation.

    Thanks.

    Hello Anjali,

    As per my knowledge, there are 2 things: If you complete Bsc Nursing and would like to apply for Msc. Nursing In USA which is called Nurse Practioner(N.P) So, you must have to take NCLEX-RN to be registered Nurse in the USA. So, basically, you have to choose a college in the USA who offer NP - Psychiatric nursing program and I'm sure in their program qualification they mentioned you have to be Registered nurse in the USA. It means you have to complete an NCLEX-RN license for that state who offer this program. You can take NCLEX-RN license exam in India and be US RN but you have to go through your transcript evaluation process and meet the US BSc Nursing requirement and you did. So, you should be ok but you should complete this process to get the qualify for the NCLEX exam. I would recommend to choose college and apply for NCLEX in Texas, Massachusetts, California, and Illinois( Chicago) states. Probably these stat's evaluation process is straight forward and simple than other states. Some other states ask you to take CGFNS and other English proficiency tests as well before qualifying for NCLEX and Once you clear the license exam some college may require GRE or IELTS or TOEFL to get admission in the Master's program. But it is varies based on the college. After you can get admission and apply for the student visa(F1).

    Therefore, I would strongly recommend to complete Msc. from India and apply for above-mentioned state's nursing board to get eligible to NCLEX based on your Msc education and once you qualify to take the exam and after getting through exam you can directly apply to any hospital where you applied for your NCLEX and hospital will guide you for work authorization and other visa stuff.



    Second thing: If you want to go back to India and serve I India where you can get a job since US degree is widely accepted but since Nursing has license protocol I would strongly recommend to check in with your domicile state license board or the state where you would like to work after completing your NP program that what is the foreign (USA) Msc Nursing degree license process. It would be best to check in with them and good to know their policies ahead.



    Hope my answer will help you to make a decision.

      Hi

      I've also completed BSc in Psychology in India and wondering if I am able to proceed with my career in mental health. I own a website so it's my main occupation for now. What to do next to become a councelor?

        Especially at this time, being a nurse is not easy. On the fragile shoulders of every nurse there is an enormous amount of responsibility. A person must be hardy and patient with everything, because it is a profession that requires patience, accuracy, and care. I have noticed that there are very few good nurses at the moment. However, I do know that cnaclasses101.com trains true professionals. It is this job that is sent to us by heaven and nurses are our angels who protect us from trouble and disease

          I have the same situation as you, I just can't decide what to do next. I was recommended to apply for MSC. As someone mentioned above, I must have to take NCLEX-RN to be a registered nurse in the USA. Will this allow me to work for private home care services, should I get a license for working with people outside medical institutions? Does someone here work in the USA? The answers above are pretty old, they don't include the pandemic nuances. I hope nothing is changed for foreigners in terms of getting a job. On the contrary, they should be interested in the increase of medical staff across the country.

            You have described everything correctly and in detail, but I beg to differ with you slightly in that the application and the NCLEX test itself will be easier in Texas, Massachusetts, California, and Illinois than in other states. Maybe it used to be, but I don't think it is now. The NCLEX is a national exam. The level of difficulty remains the same no matter where you take it or through which state you are allowed to take the NCLEX.
            It is also very common to find websites on the Internet that offer to buy a list of questions that you will find on the test. Don't believe it! It can't be. The real NCLEX test questions are not published anywhere for obvious reasons. Be wary of offers to buy "real NCLEX questions". You will buy questions copied from any freely available NCLEX textbook, but at a greatly inflated price.
            The only thing I would advise you to do is to use the services of a tutor and prepare thoroughly for this test, I would recommend the online resource https://writemyessay.nyc. The first two sessions are introductory and completely free. After you have passed the training course you will have the opportunity to take a trial exam (of course it does not affect anything, but only a simulation of the exam itself, so that you were ready as best as possible), because this test itself is quite complicated - it is a computer test, mostly consisting of questions, which must pick up the correct answer of the four possible. There can be anywhere from 75 to 265 questions on the exam, computer-matched depending on previous answers. The NCLEX exam can last up to five hours!!!
            And by the way, the NCLEX can only be taken at Pearson VUE centers located throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, and India.
            Good luck to you!!!
