    I go back in the fall to graduate in December. I am just so sad! I appealed my instructor's decision all the way up to the chancellor, I still got a no, but it made me feel better. My family and sponsors were very supportive, and the school allowed me to register late in order to keep my 12 hours for F-1.
    You are right, and my husband told me the same thing. We are all here, together, and legal. My kids and I are in school and that is what I need to focus on. I believe this happened to "buy" me time for something, maybe the visa thing. Like you say, expect changes, in my favor hopefully...
    This is were I just do not get this math requirement. I undersand the need for it, and I understand an error on paper would translate into a medical error.
    But, wouldn't the wrong answers on the tests of people who made bad grades on the cardiac tests, translate into medical errors also? There was this one girl who was not able to take a manual blood pressure, which we are also "required" to do. She's in there, graduating in May...
    And I feel embarrased and feel kicked out, like I had cheated or something, because I made 80% !! And my error was not in the set up, or in the working of the problem, I did it right, but I plugged in a 1ml in the set up from the word problem above, instead of a 2 mL. I don't know why that happened, but like the vice chancellor at the school told me when I asked him about the ME on the written tests, the B/P girl and my math "fail", he had to think and saw the unfairness, but he told me "they were judged to meet standard, and you were not". I am proud that two respected doctors in this area, took their time and thought I was worth it, to call and write to the school about this.
    I am going to stop with this today, focus on my Fine arts, EKG, Perspectives of Nursing and Public Relations classes, most towards a BSN, because math or not, I am getting my RN. I have overcome MANY obstacles to be here and do this. I just know I'd make a good nurse, I have a good GPA, and love to be in the hospital and work with people, and here I am, taking Fine arts...
    But I am going to enjoy my "easy" classes, learn my EKG's from A to Z, and face those that would be graduating with me in May, every Tuesday in my Perspectives class. I'll be the poster child, and convey the message to everyone in nursing, that no matter how good you are in everything else, it all comes down to 20 minutes and 10 problems, under terrible pressure.
    I am also going to test in the testing center for those with "special needs", that I never thought I had, but I guess I do. Oh! and I am taking the Drug calculation class !!!
    I apologize for the lenghth of the message, I just let it all out... I'm going to shut up now, and do my work. Thanks! Maria

    Best of luck to you. The math exams are actually required by the Boards of Nursing. You are given three chances to pass them, and if you cannot, then you are out of the program. It is not from the school, but the state that makes that requirement.

    Best of luck to you in your studies...............

    Hello again!
    As far as i know there is a way to get work visa via Adjustment of status, if I in US as a tourist but have an employer and have license. Is there something like this for the Green Card?
    Thank you.

    There is no way for a nurse to get an Adjustment of Status at the moment, as there are no green cards available and USCIS will only accept the I-140. That will not permit you to work or adjust your status. Both of those required petitions are not being accepted until there are visas available.

    And it is not called a work visa, it is called the EAD. It is a temporary document that allows the person to work while their papers are being processed. A work visa is a temporary work permit and they do not exist in nursing.

    If you are currently in the US on a tourist visa, you are going to need to return home when your visa expires. You do not want to apply for an extension, as you do not have a valid reason to stay, and that canget you sent home by immigration, something that you do not want.

    Retrogression again... But can an Adjustment of Status be done after the retrogression, when green cards are available? ( I am not in US and do not want to play games with uncle Sam ).

    Your smartest move is to get petitioned while you are in the Israel. It is actually in violation of US Immigration law to come to the US with the purpose of finding a job and staying.

    With the AOS, you would need to be in the US for five months or so with no income coming in and most are unable to that and resort to working illegally. They are cracking down on people like that and they are getting deported, which means not being able to return to the US for ten years.

    A tourist visa to the US does not mean that you are automatically admitted to the US when you arrive. Take a close look at the visa, it states that it is up to the immigration officer when you arrive.

    I answered your e-mail. The training and work experience is so different in your country that you will be trained completely when you start working.

    While you are waiting, I highly recommend that you study Spanish, you will be using it almost constantly at work and very little English there with your patients. Laredo is right on the border with Mexico.

    Not one that I have heard of. All have their EAD, but not the green card, and that includes those that applied during the summer.

    i have a green card now for over 21 years , permanent , I am married to an American. What are you saying?
    Hi,
    What I am saying is that I personally know someone that was in immigration detention and while I was there... waiting and waiting and waiting to visit or attend the court proceedings I had the opportunity to personally speak with the families of many people in immigration detention (federal area in a federal prision) and many of their family members in detention had green cards... the government will take your green card AWAY if you do something wrong. For example one lost his and was deported because he had a DUI he had been in the USA since age three. That person had a business(employees) and owned a home. Another was deported, because he had not completed the process after getting refugee status and allowed his paper work to expire.
    The one that really effects those here working on tourist visas, that I personally saw and spoke with family about is:
    to all those working illegally in nursing homes, care homes etc. On monday this week I saw a young woman in immigration court that came from the Philippines on a tourist visa... she said she was just helping her brother who was working illegally in a care home in Los Angeles. She arrived one day from Manila (with a tourist visa) spent the night in the care home with her brother and ICE raided the care home the following day.... they were both arrested and taken into custody, she has spent three weeks in immigration detention and is being sent home. I don't think the employer is going to say they convinced you to work for them, they will say that you lied about your status and you will be the one paying the price. Immigration is not playing with people, they are doing sweeps and you will be arrested. So don't work illegally, if you have a green card, don't do anything wrong (even walk away from that argument with your neighbor) because if you get charged and convicted they can take your green card back. If they found out you lied they can take back the green card.
    Get your citizenship asap...
    Please do advise everyone you know not to play games or try to tell lies to get their papers through. They will catch you and deport you. I sat and watched it with my own eyes...
    The detention centers are jails, you are put in with criminals because it is a criminal offense. Many of those in there are not healthy... or clean... for example they have had "chicken pox" going through the place for three months now. It is not worth it.....
