    You would have to contact the BON in Massachusetts and they will give you information on requirements and how to apply for a license. If you meet their requirements you will be allowed to write the NCLEX.You would also have to get the work visa required. The current wait for a Green Card is about 6 years.

    If you check out the MA state forum under the US tab above you will see that many US nurses living in Boston especially experienced are struggling for work never mind a International one looking for sponsorship. Be prepared for the long wait both looking for a employer and a immigrant visa.

    The job market in the US is as poor as it is everywhere else. There are more nurses than there are positions in most areas.

    Oops, people say it's better than Europe. Maybe I have to look to Australia or New Zeland...

    Unfortunately things for the US isn't looking good. Suggest a read up on retrogression as current wait for a nurse once they have met state requirements and found a employer willing to file for immigrant visa is over 6 years.

    Boston market requires a BSN to work and jobs are hard to come by. Also no hospital is sponsoring atthis time .
