H1b requires minimum of BSN or 12 plus years experience. Also with many US nurses struggling to find work then finding employer willing to pay $$$ for H1b will be hard. Green card is under retrogression (nurses generally go under EB3) and will take over 6 years at current processing time and no way for you to work whilst waiting unless you find a employer willing to go the work visa route. If born in Ireland you could try the diversity lottery
