Work in US

Hello!

My name is Diana and are now studying a bachelor degree in Occupational therapy in Sweden. My plan is to move to Florida when im done with school and have my exam.
I wonder if there is any one from Sweden who works in the US?
I would love to know how I need to do to work there.
I have understood that I need a master degree so thought of studying master in US but then Its not sure its guarantee OTED approval. How will I know if its approval with a swedish bachelor degree with a us post master degree?

Stands like this:

Education Requirements

To be eligible to apply for OTED, you must meet all fieldwork requirements AND have:

An entry-level master's degree in occupational therapy, or
A bachelor's degree in occupational therapy with a post-professional master's or doctoral degree in occupational therapy.
Additional coursework may be needed to satisfy requirements.

Please note: Earning a post-professional master's/doctoral degree in occupational therapy in the U.S. does NOT guarantee OTED approval. OTED approvals are based on the educational comparability review of your combined education.
