Hi,

Is t necessary to have CEN certificate to work as ER nurse in US? I worked as ER nurse with my RN license in India. but i did not do any specializtion.

Not required but helpful. BSN & recent work experience as well as work rights (not needing visa sponsorship ) will be more helpful than CEN.

I am staying in USA since 3 years on H4 visa. So I have 3 years of gap for employment (until get visa). Does it affect for applying visa?

Will likely affect employment options with 3+ year gap

I dont have BSN. so if i will do any 1 year nursing proram(including my dploma),does it help for H1 visa? Does it consider as 4 years of education totally?

No. Bachelors is bachelors or 10+ years (specialized) experience. Even then very difficult to secure a sponsor due to cost and current economics
