Question:

Regarding TNs for medical/allied professionals, the regulations do not appear to require a US state license in order to practice in that US state. For example, the regs for a Registered Nurse require a "state/provincial license or Licenciatura degree." Does this mean that an RN can practice nursing in the US state with a Canadian license but without a US state license or the NCLEX? In other nonimmigrant categories (such as H-1B) the nurse cannot practice in the US without either the license or the "all-but social security number" letter. By the way, I am aware of the new VisaScreen requirements for nonimmigrants, including TNs.

Answer by Donna Richardson:

There are a very few states that will license a Canadian nurse by endorsement of her Canadian license. One will provide the nurse with a limited permit if she works in long term care. However most require that the Canadian nurse pass the NCLEX.
