Foreign RN Visa Screen Certificates

The visa screen is a U.S. government immigration requirement to establish that an RN has the equivalent of a U.S. accredited nursing degree, has sufficient command of spoken and written English, has an unencumbered license (i.e. the RN license is not revoked), and that the RN has adequate medical knowledge. The Visa Screen is not a license. The U.S. National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) examination, leading to the visa screen and often licensing, can now be taken in Hong Kong. This is particularly helpful to nurses from the Philippines, China and India.
