    Yes and no. The requirements for licensure in the US is that you are a "professional" nurse in your country, or would be equivalent to that. Whcih means that currently in most cases that is a 4 year degree, or a 3 year Diplome. In the US, if you attend school here, then you can get a green card with just a two year degree, but that is no longer the case for most that trained overseas.

    Most "professional" programs are three years of longer to be considered for the US.

    It depends on how many levels of RNs that they have there. You have to be considered a First Level Nurse, that is the only requirement.

    You should be fine.
