Except for very specific careers that require a professional designation or registration with a professional corporation, there are no "valid" or "invalid" degrees. You put your degree on your resume, and whether it's from Harvard, Slippery Rock U. or an unknown university in Cameroon, it's up to the person in charge of the hiring to decide whether or not your credentials are good enough. Some people in some situations won't interview anybody not from an elite US school, others will give everyone a shot and won't care where you went to school, and others will be somewhere in between. Some of the latter won't interview anybody with a non-US degree unless it's from a well-known foreign university, but there's no rule about this.

as long as you don't need a license or certification, it does not matter where you obtain your degree. employers will look at your experience and how well you do in the interview.

you can even say you graduated in the US, it does not matter because they don't verify anyway (mostly)

I have never seen a job applicant with non-US degree who did not have to bring by transcripts evaluated by an accredited agency.

I have a education question about using a foreign degree here in California. Can anyone give me a suggestion on my current situation? I am a Californian, i just received my AA degree here from community college, but wish to move to Colombia and get a Bachelors degree and teaching credential for Physical Education at an accredited colombian university. The reason why is family & business related. However I was wondering if upon returning to California, a school district would accept a bachelors from a public university like Colombia and validate a teaching credential and consider my employment? I know that there are various exams to pass and validate certain credentials. How could i investigate this more? I wish to teach PE and sports at the high school level while i continue with a Masters here in California

Nursing licenses are granted by the nursing board of an individual state, but you must pass the NCLEX exam (a national test) to be granted a nursing license. Additional qualifications for licensure may be added by the state, but the NCLEX is mandatory. You may find you cannot go straight into a nursing job in the United States. Different states have different additional requirements.

Foreign degrees worth nothing in the USA?

It's worse than that. As a young guy I wanted to do a sabbatical in the US. People sternly told me that if I entertained the slightest hope to flip a burger, I should absolutely hide the fact that I had a MA in History from the Paris University! it would have been counter productive. My potential employer would have had a negative opinion of me. Hence
I gave up the idea of that sabbatical.

Engineering degrees from China are more or less recognized in the US. I know a professor at Columbia University and he had all degrees from China, not any from the US.
Google, Microsoft etc. (US offices, of course) also hire some people with Chinese degrees only.
