Puerto Rico Board of Nursing

Puerto Rico (PR) Board of Nursing Contact Information

Puerto Rico Board of Nursing
800 Roberto H. Todd Avenue
Room 202, Stop 18
Santurce, PR 00908

Check "allnurses.com" specifically "working as an rn in Puerto Rico".

Your best option for working in PR is probably the "VA Travel Nurse Corp"...They are the internal travel nurse program for VA facilities.
Once you are cleared to work at VA facilities, request to work at the VA in PR, you shouldn't have a problem. Regardless of what others may say, fluency in Spanish is a must. Working at the VA means your stateside licence is all you need.
