Hi, 5.5 in IELTS is a low score and it will equivalent to less than 79 in TOEFL and so many Universities may not give you an admission based on your present IELTS score. I recommend you to work on your English a little longer or get trained from a Training centre and look at a minimum of 6.0 and higher. In fact some of the Universities might ask for a IELTS of 6.5 or TOEFL of 90 plus for Health Care management.
You visa chances also will be low if you have a low score. Please do take a month or two of training and I am sure you can reach the 6.0 plus levels.
USA visa are rejected on two factors:
Factor 1: Potential Immigrant
Factor 2: Insufficiency of Funds
IELTS low score could be reason of being rejected on grounds of being potential immigrant. As USA conducts interview for all applicants it gives opportunity for candidates to explain cases like low IELTS score of 5.5 band, etc. If you could justify the low IELTS score with your education being in English Convent school and further having good English score at 10th and 12th grade. It is quite possible that the USA visa officer may grant USA study visa (F1).
All the BEST!
