I am ging to graduate this coming May with BSN. Feel so stressed because I learned that it seems impossible to apply for H1B as a registered nurse. I was told that I may apply for greencard directly, but it takes years. My opt is only for a year, which means after my opt expires, and I have not received my greencard, my status will be illegal. I am so frustrated that I have been studying so hard and it just turns out to be nothing. Can anyone give me some idea about applying for H1B or greencard, please? Any help will highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Your status only becomes "out of status" (not "illegal") if you don't leave at the end of your I-94.
So, what are the differences between the two? Thank you, ^~*. Is there anything I can do to keep myself legal? I would like to go back to school, but it requires 2000 working hours RN experience before application deadline, it would be impossible for me to complete that before my opt expires. And I was told that if I apply for GC, I may not apply for F-1 again since it is for non-immigrant and I have the immigration intend. Thank you.
