    Don't forget that as of yesterday (28th August) you can pay $1000 for a 15 day expidited service as nursing has just been added to the qualifying list. No good if you're affected by retrogresion type issues but if you're from the UK it could help speed things up a little.

    I don't know all the ins & outs of it & I don't think you can apply the fee retrospectivley but you might like to try & check it out with your immigration lawyer/agency or the US immigration website

    Really that is such a valuable piece of information and great news for the UK nurses

    its alot of money
    but worth it as all that waiting was awful, its a year since mine was being filed, i can hardly believe it
    if i could have cut out those months of waiting by paying i probably would have

    That only applies to new petitions submitted after the 28th and after. It cannot be applied to any that are currently waiting.

    Good news for me too as I just got a job offer!!!

    I'm checking out the contract right now but as far as I can tell there's no nasty surprises. The get out fee is really low compared to others I've seen. The pay isn't fanstastic but it's not horrendous either & it's certainly more than I get here in the UK! I'll look on it as paying back a loan through my wages! It's a means to an end anyway!!

    I'm really excited & if this $1000 for expediting works for me then I''ll be even happier!! Actually I noticed that on the contract they re-imburse N-CLEX fees etc up to a max $1000 so maybe they'll re-imburse it I-140's way!!

    Well I'm just too excited for words right now so I'll go now before I bore you anymore!!
