    You need to apply to the state nursing board (links can be found at the bottom of the page) and meet their requirements for licensure to be a RN. You are not applying for NCLEX that is just a part of the process. On average you are looking at 4-6 months to get eligibility but a lot will depend on paperwork and how timely it is sent. Also unless you have a tourist visa you may find it hard to get one with the exam now being sat outside the US.

    Would also suggest you read up on retrogression as you will be affected (unless you are able to get a work visa)
