I would like to know if I need a student visa to take a refresher course (one to two monther either online or in-class) for NCLEX in the US. I am a Canadian citizen and I am planning on studying and taking the test in the US rather than here in Canada.

Only schools certified by the Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) are eligible for F1, M1, or J1 Visas (trainee and student visas). Chances are, review centers for NCLEX are not included, hence, is a not a viable route for a student visa.
Check this website, it is a search engine for US programs that are SEVP certfied: Study in the States - School Search
You may still be able to take a review course in the US as a Canadian visitor. These programs do not last more than 3 months I suppose.
