Welcome to Allnurses.com...........
You will need to apply to the state BON for where you wish to work, and thebn once accepted by them you will be permitted to sit for the NCLEX exam. You will need to meet the requirements for the foreign-trained nurse, even if you have a green card now, or even a US passport. Those requirements are not waived for you, and they will vary by state.
Check out the NCLEX forum for help with preparing for that exam.
