Hi Lax,
It depends on your career appetite. Today there are many options available for BS.c Nursing graduates.
1. Proceed to M.Sc (Nursing or other subjects where you are eligible),
2. Join a Corporate Nursing service with good salary.
3. Proceed to MBA if you have Business and Administrative accumen, you have Management degrees in Hotel Administration as well which offer promising career.
4. Migrate to UK / US to provide Nursing Services.
5. Get certified in medical equipment, clinical nutrition, physiotherapy and other professional certifications which enhance your knowledge and skills in your line of qualification.
First you have to evaluate your readiness, constraints, aspirations and commitments and then plan out your career steps. It is not necessary that the career would take the same path but your hard work and planning would not go waste.
Good Luck. I think in addition, opinions from experts in your own area would be more specific and helpful in your decisions.

Anybody going to the US from India would have advantage if their English is fluent.
TOEFL may be necessary. But read the following article and look for similar content which can help you.

A Foreigner's Introduction to Studying Nursing in the U.S - Associated Content from Yahoo! - <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google )

The following is an extract from the same. "All nursing students of whatever level in the United States will have to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). TOEFL results are valid for two years after you take the test. For those nursing students who wish to practice nursing in the United States, further tests are required, including the Test of Spoken English (TSE) and the Test of Written English (TWE) and sometimes the MELAB battery, another English proficiency examination."

The article is old but seemed relevant for the context. Please do look for the latest updates and talk to Consultancies facilitating Foreigner education in US, seniors and your faculty members. You need to make up your mind before you do all the research, do not waste time going around when you have no such plans. Time is precious. Beware of fake consultancies who promise you "The Moon".
