How to get RN license?

  1. Hello dear nurses!

    I'm nurse from Lithuania, I live in USA almost 3 y. and I'm trying to get nursing license. Las week I took a CGFNS exam, but I heard that in some states (like NY, CA, MR) I can take just NCLEX exam, and then get my license.

    If somebody know something about it, or maybe had the same situation like me, please help me to find more information.

    Thank you very much!

    You might want to check with some of the hospitals as many of them do foreign recruitment. Human Resources (if they do foreign recruitment) would be able to guide you in the right direction.

    Check out the MBON site. "Maryland Board of Nursing". That should help.
