    To begin with, passing their nursing exam in their national language. Your US license is not vlaid there. Then there is immigration, you can expect it to take you about two years before you will be able to work there legally.

    It is going to depend on which country that the island belongs to, just as a start. If the US, then you will need to go thru the US immigration process. Otherwise the country that the island belongs to. If a Dutch island, then it should be much easier for you, such as Aruba, etc. Best bet in that case, would be to contact their Board of Nursing (or equivalent) directly. They will be able to give you the exact info that you are looking for. I would get the info directly from them and not from an agency. You will save yourself much time and effort.
