I have written and passed the NCLEX, gotten my RN licence for the state of Georgia, and have a job offer. All I need now, or so I thought, was the work visa. I figured on getting the TN visa since it is much simpler and doesnt require an immigration attorney. I guess I have two questions. My first is if anyone has a template for the job offer letter so I can provide it to my employer.
My second is that I noticed on another topic someone saying we need the Visascreen for the TN visa. Nowhere on the immigration website does it say anything about Visascreen being a requirement. I do have my Credentials evaluation service completed, but since Georgia BON gave me my licence without VS being finished, I didnt see the point in spending money and time on it for nothing. Can anyone tell me if 100% the VS is necessary, and if so, where this information is located? Can it be that it was required for these people only for their respective BON? I really need some answers ASAP because if all goes as planned, I will be getting the visa sometime this week. Please help!!
Thanks for any info!

- May 20, '12 by FinallyLPN,RNAs far as I know, any Canadian citizen wanting to work in the US needs to get their Visa Screen. I'm pretty sure it's a requirement in order to get a TN visa. You can apply for it on the CGFNS website. It does require you to request transcripts, license validations, etc. so it is a lengthy process. I applied for mine at the beginning of last November and finally received my Visa Screen certificate at the end of January. Hope this helps and good luck!
- May 20, '12 by uRNmywayWow, well you are lucky...I have been trying to get my Visascreen certificate for around 2 years. It took so long to get things done by them that it expired and I had to pay to get it reactivated. I have paperwork that was sent by my order of nurses back in mid april, and they only added it to my file a week or so ago. They take so long to get things done, and I can not afford to wait on them anymore!
