Each country will have their own requirements and in the Canadian, Australian and here in the International forum you will find information for Canada, Australia and US. I am not sure for Costa-Rica. For the US a lot depends on what type of visa your wife gets to whether you can work. Approx processing times is several months and for US and Canada you will need to pass their nursing exam.

Suggest a good read on here

Processing is for the licensing part of it and the immigration part cannot start for any of the countries without having passed the licensing exam for the particular country.

The only visa that is available for the US is the green card, and that is under retrogression at this time. There is much already written on this topic.
