    The retrogression is still on and will be on for some time. 50,000 visas are not going to cover all that have their documents already submitted. Do the math. 50,000 will actually only cover about 10,000 to 15,000 nurses because it also includes immediate family members in the number. Look at how many are in the process already just from one country........and increase that to cover 3 very large countries. And the current date is still in 2002.

    The bill only authorizes 50,000 visas to be released. It doesn't specify when immigration is required to act on them.

    This is what I have been trying to explain to you all along, just because these visas will become available, things aren't going to change overnight.

    Nope. I am not closing the thread!Only thing is, now thread became obsolete as additonal 50 K visas are alloted for nurses and also, we have the BEST news for RNs from India, Philippines and China thread here http://allnurses.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104713

    As predicted before, it was expected that PD wont change in June bulletin. Top folks in USICS has to sit and decide how they allocate these extra visas. Hold on for another 30 days. It will be current on June 15 Visa bulletin.

    Nothing to be shocked, if you had known how things happened with USCIS before. Thats why it was previously mentioned as reply to your concern that REALISTICALLY PD would not be current on May 15 Bulletin, though anyone had every right to be optmisitc.

    Hold on for another 30 days. You should be fine. PD will be current!
    Retrogression for Nurses be lifted soon (on July 1). As Immi. lawyer Shusterman accurately predicts, newly alloted visas will insure supply of RNs for next 3 to 4 years. Read more about this on another thread (BEST news...)

    anyways, some correction on dates :

    Visa Bulletin for June just got published Today (Friday, May 13 around 2:30 PM CST) not on May 10.

    Also, We all will appreciate if you could remove all those unwanted "//" marks from your posts

    I think you are in a far better position than myself with the only exception that you are doing CP while I am doing AOS.

    About my immigration journey:

    I sneaked in my papers just before the retrogression got started. I dint have my VS when I submitted my papers. Since USCIS does not require VS to be submitted while filing our papers, things worked fine. Got my EAD approval within 3 weeks (without Visa Screen). I am expecting an RFE for VS when they look at my AOS aplication.

    Though there are so many websites there about immigration, shusterman is the one I rely for information. And his bulletin is a great source of information for all nurses.

    You no longer need CGFNS for licensure in the US, only if you are going directly to either Illinois or Michigan, otherwise most states are happy with just a curriculum review.

    The only requirements are NCLEX and the series of English exams for the Visa Screen Certificate.
