    Welcome to the site! I moved your post to the International Forum, where they have a great deal of information about these matters. It is the best place to find out about US licensure and things like visa issues.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, but you do not qualify for a working visa in the US with just the LPN/LVN license. You will need to complete a bridge program for the RN as soon as you can................once your OPT is done, it is done.

    There are no legal routes open to you, only illegal ones for temporary work permits and that will be with falsified documents by the employer, something that you do not want to get involved with.

    You must have RN after your name to qualify for US immigration, the OPT is handled thru your school.
