    You will have to go thru licensure process and then immigration. And with the retrogression in place, it is not going to be quick at all.

    Please read the Primer as mentioned at the top of this forum, all instructions are posted there. Let us know if you have any further questions after reading that.

    The requirements are the same for any foreign nurse wishing to work in the US, and all of the information can be found in the Primer at the top of this page.

    Licensure requirements must be met, followed by immigration procedures.

    sorry, but this person has given you very bad information. no one has arrived in the us in that short of time, and that time does not even start until you have completed the nclecx-rn exam and the employer petitions you. you are looking at several years for a chance at a visa for the us.

    the us is not in the hiring business, that is just the requirement of that one agency. but do suggest that you obtain experience first as it will be easier to get hired.
