    Did you immigrate to the US? You may not work in the US without a RN license. What VISA do you have ?

    You cannot work as a nurse until licensed as such. You cannot work in any capacity (nurse, janitor, etc)until you have a valid work visa and social security number. Most job applications will auto reject without valid work visa & SSN

    Also NCLEX is just one step in the licensing by examination process. Just passing the NCLEX, you are not an RN until the BoN issues your license.

    You can work just not as a nurse until the state approves your license once met requirements and passed NCLEX. Permanent visa aka green card allows you to live and work in the US but RN requirements still have to be met in the same way some other professional occupations have to do so they can work.
