    Check with your State Board of Nursing in Iowa and ask them how you can obtain your RN license? I think that you might have to take the NCLEX-RN here in the United States but I may be wrong! Once you have passed that-if you need to sit for the boards-then you should have NO problem getting a job as there is a severe nursing shortage here in the United States.

    Good Luck!

    You will need to:

    1. Contact the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools. Their program is comprised of three parts: a credentials review of the nurse's education, registration and licensure; the CGFNS Qualifying Exam, a one-day qualifying exam testing nursing knowledge; and an English language proficiency exam. Upon successful completion of all three elements of the program, the applicant is awarded a CGFNS Certificate.

    2. English Language Proficiency Exam
    The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is currently used to meet the English language proficiency requirement of the Certification Program. TOEFL is administered worldwide by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The exam measures listening, comprehension, structure and written expression and reading comprehension. For information or an application, contact: Test of English as a Foreign Language, Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151 USA; telephone: (609) 771-7100; or e-mail: toefl@ets.org.


    3. Take the NCLEX-RN examination in Iowa. Link to Iowa SBON
    Web Site: http://www.state.ia.us/government/nursing/

    Note: Prior to the Certification Program in the 1970s, the passing rate on the states nursing exam was 15-20%; today, 88-92% pass.
