Where are you moving to? Most places allow you to apply online, so you might try a search for hospitals or nursing homes in the area.

LPN does not qualify for work visa/work visa sponsorship, so no there is no temporary work visa for LPN. You can apply online for jobs in the area where you plan to live. But as LPN does not qualify for a work visa don't expect much response. Were you trained as an LPN?

In some areas the market for LPNs is highly competitive and even for RNs. Many "traditional" LPN jobs are now filled by RNs as it's an employers market

75 questions are the minimum requirement for the computer to decide whether you have passed or failed. Check out the NCLEX forum under the student tab and read there on ways you can find out pass or fail
