One way is to attend the PGA tour school and finish in the first 50 or so positions of the final stage that do not make the PGA TOUR. I believe this is about positions 36 to eighty something. A second way is through Monday qualifying. A few top finishers in the Monday tournament get to play in the weekend event. The Nationwide tour, like the PGA tour, also has a few spots for sponsor exemptions. The tour director chooses from those who have written in to apply for these spots. Finally, those top 50 or so money leaders who do not graduate from the Nationwide Tour to the PGA Tour each season, may return to play on the Nationwide Tour the following season. Practice, practice, practice!

Answer first you go to PGA qualifing school and then get your PGA card There are a few ways. You can go through Q school and the Nationwide tour or you can be highly ranked on the world money list/rankings like many European players who play in the states. You also qualify for a card if you play in the Ryder Cup. There are a few other quirky ways but finishing in the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour is the most common. Getting your card is one thing...keeping it another :)
