If you are a Foreign MD or Medical Professional currently living in the U.S., and you desire the opportunity to gain access to the U.S. medical profession to utilize your medical training and education, there is a program for you. Mid America Learning has been providing online education for professionals seeking to become licensed Nurse Practitioners. Over the last eight years through its partnerships, Mid America Learning has helped hundreds of professionals reach this goal with programs designed for the working person or stay-at-home Mom/Dad with nationally accredited programs and colleges. Mid America Learning now has a program specifically for you. In the U.S., the shortage of qualified/licensed RNs and primary care providers (Nurse Practitioners) is reaching critical levels. With the Affordable Health Care Act, immigration reform, an aging population living longer, and other legislative actions that will impact healthcare, the demand for these professions has never been greater. Healthcare continues to be one of the bright spots in national employment. Nurse Practitioner jobs are expected to grow by 94% from 128,000 in 2008 to 198,000 in 2025 according to a study published in the July 2014 issue of Medical Care. Nurse Practitioners are the fastest growing segment in primary care, growing at a rate of 10% as compared to 2% for physicians. Nurse Practitioners are expert clinicians with advanced training who provide primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services. Mean income for a nurse practitioner is $95,485, and can be as high as $205,857 in some areas of the U.S. The time has never been better to utilize your training and skills to make a difference in healthcare and your lives.

Step 1: PARAMEDIC
Step 2: RN (Associate’s)
Step 3: RN TO BSN BRIDGE
Step 4: MSN-FNP
To get started on your path to becoming a licensed FNP in the U.S., there are some steps to follow:
1) Paramedic Program: In order to start the paramedic program, all you will need is a copy of your photo ID, a copy of your American Heart Association CPR card, and a copy of your unofficial high school transcript. Because of past training and your college education in the medical field, including medical school, it is possible that you might receive advanced credit that can be applied to the paramedic program. In order to determine this, your college transcripts will have to be evaluated by a licensed U.S. company for U.S. equivalent college credit. The U.S. organization that will be used for this is Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). Click HERE to start the evaluation process.
a) It is NOT necessary to do the transcript evaluation to start and complete the paramedic program. It will, however, be necessary to see if advanced credit is possible from your college coursework. There is NO guarantee or promise that you will receive any advanced credit. If any advanced credit is given, this will only occur in the later part of the paramedic program coursework. It will take about 3-4 months to determine if any advanced credit is possible. So, there is no need to delay starting the program. You will have knowledge of any advanced credit you have received before you reach the stage of the paramedic program for which it applies.
b) It is a requirement to have your transcripts evaluated by ECE for the RN program. So, please click on the link provided above and start that process as early as you can.
2) RN Program: As indicated above, you will need to have your transcripts evaluated by a licensed U.S. company for U.S. equivalent college credit. The U.S. organization that will be used for this is Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). Please click on the link provided above for this process. Once the evaluation is complete, it is possible that you may be required to have additional general education courses, e.g., world history. There is a process to complete this requirement if needed (and quickly), so you can ask us for more details. In addition, you will also need to provide a copy of your paramedic certification that you will have just completed.
3) RN to BSN Bridge Program: One of the admission requirements is that you must provide a copy of your current U.S. RN license.
4) MSN/FNP Program: One of the admission requirements is that you must provide a copy of your current U.S. RN license.
