The applicant has a right to expect:

Note for Foreign-Educated Physicians

We frequently receive inquiries from physicians trained in another country and not practicing in the U.S. about enrolling in the FIU Nurse Anesthetist program. Because Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) certification and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) licensure requires having an RN license, physician applicants do not qualify.

However, they can first consider applying to the Foreign Educated Physician to BSN/MSN program offered exclusively by the FIU Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences. Students of this program are eligible to sit for the national RN licensing examination upon obtaining their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), and eligible to sit for ARNP licensure upon obtaining their Master of Science in Nursing (MSN).
