    To be honest not sure but you may have to meet their nursing requirements and depends what demand for RN's are. You may also need some sort of working visa.. Sorry not much help but wanted to wish you good luck

    Aruba is not part of the US, so you will need to go thru their licensing process. And you will require a visa that will permit you to work. Aruba is a Dutch colony, nothing at all to do with the US. A tourist visa to visit there will not give you pemission to work. Your license in the US, is just for the US. You will need their license to work there.

    Green cards are permanent residency for the US, they are not for other countries.

    I suggest that you contact their equivalent of a BON as soon as possilbe.
