Amer. questioning benefits studying nursing abroad

Hello! I am a 47 year old, American, pre-nursing student. I have an opportunity to get my BSN degree in Australia. I'm trying to weigh the benefits of an overseas experience versus avoiding the hassles of returning to the US to practice - that is if I don't care for staying in Australia. At 47 I'm feeling like it might be a valuae life experience that I probably will not be in a position to have if I study and start working in the US. That being said I understand there are many hoops to jump through to come back to the US to get licensure. I would love to hear from an American or any foreign educated nurse who later immigrated to the US to practice nursing.

Thanks so much!
