There is no one answer. It all depends where what country you went to school and the requirements of the state. The best place to get a license is the state you are going to be working.

Read the stickies that Suzanne has posted regarding foreign educated nurses wishing to work in the US. Also, California isn't recommended for initial licensure unless you already hold a visa or valid ss#. Good Luck
