Obtaining enough experience and developing your skills in order to be able to get a biologist license in the USA as a foreign student can be a challenging process, but there are a few steps you can take to increase your chances of success:

1. Get a degree in biology or related field: It is typically required to have a bachelor's degree in biology or a related field in order to be eligible for licensure as a biologist in the USA.

2. Gain experience: Look for opportunities to gain relevant experience in the field of biology, such as internships, research assistantships, or volunteer work. This will help you to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to pass the licensure exam.

3. Learn about the licensure requirements in the state where you plan to work: Biologist licensure requirements vary by state, so it's important to learn about the specific requirements in the state where you plan to work.

4. Take the necessary exams: In most states, you will need to pass a written examination in order to obtain a biologist license. Study materials and practice exams are available to help prepare for the exam.

5. Get supervised experience: Many states require a certain amount of supervised experience in order to be eligible for licensure. Look for opportunities to gain supervised experience in the field, either through internships or other types of work experience.

6. Consider working with a mentor: Find a mentor who is already a licensed biologist and who can provide guidance and advice on the licensure process.

It is important to note that the requirements for licensure may vary by state, so you should check with the state board of licensure to confirm the specific requirements in the state where you plan to work.

Erick,
Hello, that is a great goal! There are a couple of options to explore that may be able to help you achieve your goals.

If you have earned a degree in biology as a foreign student, you maybe able to have your education evaluated and/or your credentials verified. I am an authorized agent for the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS). Although we don’t evaluate biology as a profession, we do provide services for Medical Laboratory Scientists and Medical Laboratory Technicians. We also provide visa screening services.

If you have not attained the education and training, there are options for you to earn your degree. There are Universities in the US as well as other countries that offer free tuition for International students. I have included the web links for 2 participating American Universities that offer a biology program.

Your interest and desire to pursue biology is a valuable contribution to the world.
