Moved to the International forum as per the red banner.

I have also changed titled as not applying for NCLEX but license to be a RN in the US, NCLEX is just a part of that application.

Starting point is the state board of nursing and links cane be found at the bottom of the page. You will need to meet requirements for foreign trained nurse
