    Yeah...I agree with Suzanne in this matter.
    I have processed and paid everything from my pocket..well of course from my dad's pocket.
    But the agency I was working with handed me the contract which was suspicious...it had mentioned abt sign-on bonus but when asked to them..they told me it is going for the attorney fee. But I didnt feel comfortable when I see that I have to pay for the lawyer and visa fee.

    So..I turned them down..yeah why not...coz I have done everything uptill now..and I am looking for the sponser.
    I agree that its very tempting to just have a job and lots of foreign nurses think that oh well..its just a two-year contract.
    Well, again think that we have the education and we did all the hard work..why should we give them our hard-earned money..no way...its not me..

    Having said that...I am still contacting every hospital and asking them if they file petition for foreign nurses or not. One HR called me after seeing my resume and scheduled me for the interview...its on monday Wish me a Luck...

    As well as BEST of Luck to all Nurses to achieve their dreams.

    Hi! I am arranging everything on my own. If ever I go through the direct hire route, what is the common requirement? Does hospital require extensive experience before it will sponsor you for EB3?

    There is nothing different in the arrangements done between the agency route and direct hire.
    MY advice GOOD RESUME and COVER LETTER..as well as comprehensive communication.
    Moreever, its always good to have experience...gotta look good for the resumes

    Concentrate more on getting thru your exams first. Themore reputable agencies will want to see proof that you at least passed either NCLEX or CGFNS. There is nothing that can be done with your paperwork, etc., until there is documented proof that you passed one of these two exams.
    Hi!

    I passed all--NCLEX, CGFNS and IELTS. but im getting impatient and frustrated now. coz until now i havent found an agency or a hospital in Texas who would sponsor me.

    Im faced with the big Q of-- what's next?

    My father had sponsored my examination expenses and visa screen and now I am processing my visa screen certificate.I am having a hard time finding a direct employer and now that the retrogression is fast approaching, still, I dont have a direct employer because most hospitals' petitioning program are on hold for the moment, but, I decided to wait and be patient..I guess I just have to wait for the new Visa bill to be passed by the Senate because I would still be affected by the Retro this November in case an employer would petition me..I am trying to avoid the services of an agency because I dont want to pay them a fortune, and I find it uncomfortable that they would take a portion of my paycheck every month for period of years, well that is my own stand since my dad was there to help me with my US exam expenses.For the moment, I am busy working and gaining expertise in clinical practice so I dont worry a lot about the retrogression, I am diverting my attention to work and I am enjoying every moment of it..

    guess, im just exhausted...my nursing school was toxic and so i needed to keep up...usual sleeping hours when i was studying was 3-4 hours..consider that i was a student and at the same time, the general manager of my house...with children and a hubby to take care of...then i immediately took the local board. passed. reviewed for cgfns. passed. then reviewed for ielts. luckily fate took mercy..reviewed for nclex...pearsonvue quick results states that i passed. but no posting yet of my name in NM BON website. so im still waiting for my license number. i just hope there is no problem with my papers? or the result of my exam?

    but really im tired at this time. and my spirit is low. maybe i need to pause and recharge. and then do an ADPIE (assessment, diagnosis, planning,implementation and evaluation). sincerely, i do this every time i got a concern and most of the time, when my rationality is in full control, this ADPIE is sooo useful.

    this website provides me with lots of infos i need... coz im quite ahead of my peers. and i got no one to at least guide me. you are one of those who are helping me right now and uplifting my spirit.

    wait. i also took charge of all my exams. now, do i need to process my visa screen?

    but im still hoping someone would pm me and advise me hospitals that sponsor overseas nurses. that would boost again my hopes and provide me with some kick. im interested to work in texas.

    now, to every individual here who is soo giving-- thank you! may i also be useful as soon as i get out of this dash.

    Hello,
    I friend of mine has taken NCLEX for Ohio state and received a visa screen. But she can't find a hospital to help with immigration process. Does anyone can tell a hospital who works with foreign nurses or good recruitment agency in Ohio?
    Thank you .
