Hello world! / bsn i am from cuba i recently passed the florida board and got my license in usa, what can i do to get my bsn from cuba recognized here, i studied there for 5 years, nursing licenciate, thats the equivalent to a bsn in the states, thanks

If you had a review by Florida or by the CGFNS of your nursing education, then you are set…no problem. The recognition of the BSN from Cuba will only be a problem academically. For example, if you want to persue a Masters Degree here in USA, you will have some credentialing procedures with the particular USA university. Otherwise, as far as I am concerned, it is equivalent. So the question, is….who do you want to consider it equivalent? Employers or schools?
