eb2 question from a foreign graduateRegister Today!
- by cuddlyanne Jul 1, '12If I have completed a masters degree in the Philippines. Will I be able to qualify for the eb2??pls.. Help..thank u!!!
- Jul 1, '12 by JustBeachyNurseDo you have experience working as a nurse? Do you have a US nursing license?
There are very few US employers recruiting overseas nurses right now. The supply of new & expereinced US Citizen & permanent resident nurses exceeds the demands for nurses right now in most areas of the country.
From USCIS: USCIS - Employment-Based Immigration: Second Preference EB-2
- Thank u for the link you provided. Yes, I am a licensed nurse in the US. I am aware that there is no working and immigrant visas available for nurses so I am trying to find another way to apply for a visa like the eb2. I am really confused what to do.
- Jul 2, '12 by JustBeachyNurseQuote from cuddlyanneDo you have significant experience (paid) working as a nurse in acute care or a specialty area (critical care, ED, OR, etc)? The current "recommendation" is 5-10 years paid working experience. There are no short cutsThank u for the link you provided. Yes, I am a licensed nurse in the US.

- No, I dont have such experience. So they would only accept a us based MSN? I tried to read the link you sent me. As what I understood I need a masters degree from a US university or from another country(if qualified) or a 5-10 years paid working experience. Did I understand it wrongly?
- Jul 2, '12 by JustBeachyNurseI am not an immigration lawyer so I really can't offer advice.
As far as your situation qualifying for an EB2 visa you need to contact an immigration attorney (not an immigration agent but a licensed attorney who specializes in immigration issues)
- Ok.. Thank you for your response..

It isn't just a case of having the qualification but finding a job in that qualification and meeting requirements. Most jobs are not at master's level so finding a employer may be hard
