    And again, how many people are in her apt? She needs to get thru the CVS before NY will issue her a limited permit, and I am sure that the agency is just starting that, or just before she got here. That takes months.......so as I asked before, what salary is she actually getting? She cannot be getting an RN salary if she does not have a license, and does not have the CVS completed.
    Im afraid to ask her straight away - so how much is your salary? hehe :wink2: no way, she's my friend since high school, i cant ask her that question.

    The accomodation she said she was alone in her room but I didnt ask how many rooms are there in the building and how huge is the accomodation. Next time I'll ask the name of the agency if she's available online.

    By the way she applied last year around June 2005 she said they immediately ask her to take the CGFNS (Dec 2005) and IELTS. She didnt know the details on her I-140 and other stuff like the NVC. She was just contacted to come to embassy at the last stage. She has no idea of the whole process like labor certification requirement etc.

    I think CNA means certified nursing assistant

    I wonder how many nurse immigrants who passed CG have difficulty passing NCLEX. I guess the USCIS has the statistics.

    If the passing rate is so low, I believe NCLEX will become mandatory to get an immigrant visa.

    Why? The Labor Certification is for RN, not for LVN or NA. In the current situation, foreign born nurses who got greencard via CG and without NCLEX are competing with American LVNs and NAs.

    But I guess the NCLEX-RN passing rate for CG passers are high.
    Although it's in the high 80's for US grads, the first time takers for international graduates is lower at 62%.
