What visa will you have to work in the US? If you check out the NY BON website (links can be found to the state boards of nursing at the bottom of the page) all requirements will be there for LPN or RN for International nurse but I would hang off applying until you know what sort of visa (if required) you need as LPN doesn't always meet NAFTA so may be spending money that is wasted
