I am an international student currently on a F-1 student visa and will be graduating this June with a BSN. Is it ok for me to state that I am "legal to work in the US" when filling out job applications?
As an F-1 student I am technically not legal to work outside of campus but I am going to apply for my OPT and I am assuming that once approved, I will be legal. So it is really ok for me at this point to state that I am legal???
Also, do I have to let HR or the nurse managers know that I am eligible to work for only a year with my OPT? I am afraid that I will not get hired as most prefer a long-term employee.
On a side-note, I know that it is hard to get an H1B visa as an RN and am planning to get my masters after my opt. Is this a feasible plan???
Trying to figure everything out at this critical time has been really frustrating so any advice from you guys will be greatly and truly appreciated.
Thanks so much!!!
