    We don't recommend Ca for initial license application unless you already have a work/immigrant visa and SSN, much has already been written why so suggest a search in this forum using California as key word

    You can start the application process where ever you want as long as you meet BON/BRN requirements for foreign trained and you can sit the exam anywhere in the world that has a test center, however be aware that when outside the US there is an extra fee and you have to call to book your test date.

    If you haven't already got a work/immigrant visa would also suggest you read up on retrogression as you will to the most be affected and you are not applying for NCLEX application but application to be a nurse in the US of which NCLEX is a part of that process
