How to study Nursing in the US when I already have a UK bachelors degree?

Hi everyone!
I am a UK student who holds a UK Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science degree (BSc Hons) and I would like to study Nursing in California. I fell in love with California after a trip and since then I have wanted to study there.

Unfortunately, I am finding the applications process very confusing. I am unsure what route to go down as I already have a bachelor's degree and am not a typical "straight out of secondary school" applicant. A lot of colleges will not accept freshmen if they already have bachelor's degrees, so I have considered going to community college first and then transferring to a 4-year university to complete a bachelor's in Nursing, although again, I am unsure if I am allowed to transfer onto a bachelor's at a 4 year institution with an existing bachelors.

The best option for me would be entering onto a nursing masters program. These do exist, however I have been told I need certain pre-requisites for these. As far as I can tell, the classes I took on my UK bachelor's are non transferable, so I would have to take these pre-reqs at a US college, however visas are not issued to those completing pre-requisites.

I am just very confused. Sorry for the long post!

I wondered whether anyone has had experience applying to US Nursing school, or US college in general with an existing UK bachelor's degree?
How did you do it?

Thank you so much for reading, any advice would be so appreciated!
