There are ways. But nursing is retrogressed so that is not one of them.

You could no doubt study. Exchange, do they do that?

Work visas require an Employer willing to sponsor you.

I knew about the sponsor .

That s why i wonder about studying.

Do you think it s possible to studying something you already studied in the country you come from?

I would love go take nursing classes in the US.

But the Board of nurses Never answered to me.

Getting a student visa to re study the same subject may be challenging, you would need a good reason.

I'm a RN here in The US. The process will be different for you than me - as a Canadian I can come under a TN Visa. But regardless, no employer will look at your resume until you are licensed in the state in which you want to work. In my case the easiest state to get a RN license was Minnesota, so I did that and then transferred it to WA before I started job hunting. The websites for the regulatory bodies will have the requirements.

You will need to take the NCLEX in order to obtain your license along with whatever the regulatory bodies say you need to do. There is a second exam that some states require you take (the name escapes me, it's one that you'd be required before you would be authorized to take the NCLEX), you may be required to take that as you aren't from a primarily English speaking country.

Once you are about to apply for a visa you will need to get a VisaScreen Certificate, which is something specific for health professionals needed before a work visa is granted (education verification). This also takes significant time so it is important to have this prior to the visa application. I'd confirm too that it is required as it's expensive. It is 100% required for the TN visa and my understanding from talking to my employers HR person who helps me with this is that it's required for all healthcare professionals on any work visa.

I'm not sure if institutes hire outside of US/Canada and I'm not sure about retrogression, and how that affects things. But I can speak extensively on the steps you need to take before even applying for a job and the RN-related steps that most here won't necessarily be aware of.

No. I'm about to leave for work so I don't have time to hunt for it at the moment, but http://www.cgfns.org/services/is the credentials company that validates, and they may also talk about the exam (I can't recall that right now, 100%). It's RN specific but some states require it before the NCLEX. You may _also_ have to do TOEFL.

I agree it is a pain, especially if you can't get a work visa.

Talk to travel nursing agencies, their websites may likely have the info you seek and may even be an organization that would be willing to sponsor you for a visa even given how long it might take. Plus: you wouldn't have to stick to California, you could work contracts throughout the USA.
