    Short answer, no. You'll need to get licensed first.

    No hospital will hire you to work as a RN without a RN license. They might hire you for non-nursing positions, but if you want to practice as a registered nurse, you need a valid license.

    Not as an RN. You may be able to work in a capacity other than nursing. You will need a work visa/sponsorship if you aren't a US citizen.
