    [QUOTE=NYrnTX]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...)

    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.

    For guests / new nembers here :

    I've received many mails from anxious members/guests asking about whats the latest on retrogression. Please note that, Since new 50 K visas are released for Nurses and PTs on May 11 2005, the date President Bush signed the appropriations bill in to a law, we have a started a new extremely active thread 'BEST news......" here at http://allnurses.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104713 . You can consider this new thread as the continutation of this thread.

    Thank you.
