Transfer Diploma To United States

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is from Uzbekistan and she has her diploma from medical college in Uzbekistan. Her diploma is on nursing. She came to USA via K1 and now she is a permanent resident in USA. She wants to work as Nurse here in USA. Can she transfer her credits or maybe get her diploma re-evaluated here so she has to take less courses here in states? Does anyone have any information on where we should go to talk about this?

In other words does she has to start all over again. Can she at least get some credits from universities in USA since she has a lot of work experience back in Uzbekistan.

Talk to the local colleges would be a good start.

There are ways to transfer her diploma, so she doesn't have to start all over again.

Find out what state she wants to work in and go the that States Board of Nursing, they will have detailed information of what is required to sit for NCLEX exam to become a RN in the USA. Look under international Graduates.
