Hi!I hope you can enlightened me on this situation. Im here in the Philippines. I signed a contract with one of the hospital in US . Their HR personnel came to our country to recruit nurses who already had all the necessary credentials to work in US.It was last February and until now I have not yet recieved any notice of receipt from USCIS.
Inspite of my constant communication with the agency representing the hospital, all they are saying is just to trust them and just wait because they already forwarded my papers to their lawyers.
Yesterday, I received a call from another agency offering me an RN-Job in US via an H-1C Visa. I told this agency that I already signed a contract with one of the hospital in US. But this agency offering me an H1-C visa said that it is possible to file simultaneously both the H1-C and Immigrant Visa. Do you have any comment on this?I would greatly appreciate any comments on this issue. Thank you so much

could anybody explain to me what are the different types of visa for nurses? i'm a little bit confused...
you may go to our international nursing forum
. i have actually just posted links to 2 diff. threads about h1b visa and the h1c visa in a thread there. please look for it there.
the green card is what is preferred by many and the h1b is simply not available until april next year and would be difficult as it means being randomly picked and no guarantees of approval for foreign-educated generalists nurses.
hope this helps.
