Application timeline?



I am trying to work as an LPN in New York (I am a LPN in Hong Kong). I know I need the application filled out for the state education department and application from CVS. But which one do I fill out first? How long does the whole process take??

For immigration you have to be RN unless you have citizenship/greencard via another route i.e marriage. I suggest a good read in this and the Philippine forum as it has been discussed

As mentioned above, with the LPN license alone, you will not be able to get a visa to work in the US. That license is not accepted by immigration for the visa.
