As a foreign graduate is it possible to take the NCLEX-RN exams while studying for a masters degree in nursing, in the U.S or canada?

How long does the approval take for foreign graduates with an F1 Visa

to get approval to take the NCLEX-RN exams?

Thanks

Every conventional/traditional US MSN program of which I'm aware requires that applicants already be licensed as an RN. The only exception to that would be the direct-entry MSN programs for non-nurses, but, if you're already a graduate of a nursing program, you wouldn't be eligible for those (and what would be the point of repeating a basic nursing program?)

I am a F-1 student too. I just took my NCLEX. The waiting process is the same like any US citizens. I applied for the BON some times in January then Pearson in Feb (90 days before graduation). It took around a week after you graduate nursing school to receive ATT to schedule for NCLEX.

I also graduated from nursing school in the States so it could be different if you graduated from a foreign school.
