    hi silver! nice to hear frm you again..well yeah,marrying a USC wud be kind of help in making it faster for me huh..i wonder when will my bf propose to me.haha! joke! you know i need some funny thoughts too..im getting hard on planning up my nursing carreer...silver...i hava question..wats a CP? sorry im not familiar with it.. so u think its better for me to focus reviewing for nclex-rn..how bout working as a nursing professor? wud dat help me? thank you
    CP is consular processing, that means done from country of resident ie UK or Phillipines. There you are processed up to packet 3 which makes it closer to a visa once retrogression is sorted. If in the US there is nothing for adjustment of status as no visas available and can only do I140 which is just the start of the process. Just concentrate on getting your NCLEX and finding employer as they need to start the process. Working as a nursing professor will need a work permit if in the US and I don't think it would help you.

    No point of taking NCLEX PN, esp. if you already took the NCLEX RN and would just need to re-exam. Taking the NCLEX PN would mean applying again for eligibility and it's content is diff. from NCLEX RN so you will need to study for a diff. thing again whereas for NCLEX RN you already know your weaknesses since you've done it already.

    NCLEX PN does not qualify for immigrant visa as of the moment. It is just now that it is being discussed on the possibility that it might.

    Erase it on your thoughts and just focus on taking the NCLEX again.

    yes, for K1 visa. by the way,considering im already in the US using K1 visa and im already an nclex-rn passer, do i still need to take ielts?

    At the moment if getting greencard through marriage then you do not need to pass English as you do not need VSC although this may change in the future. Saying that employers may ask for it
