    I've never seen a school guarantee a job to their students since there are usually more students than job openings. Are you already licensed in the US as an RN?

    I don't really think there is anything that can ensure you a job in the US.
    There are plenty of American educated RN at the BSN and Masters levels unable to work because life does not ensure jobs to anyone.
    We are in a really a horrible recession .

    Have you though about Australia.

    Please don't take it personal acourse if you still want to migrate to the US . You are more than welcome to but don't expect any guarantees
    Noone is promising a rose garden .

    Thanks LADY, but what if make contact with any recruiters out there who after my MS can provide me some job on H1B visa in some company. Afterwards i can extend my visa. In the mean time if ill be lucky ill get a green card.

    Have heard from some, about Australia but dnt know much about the working conditions and living there. How about CANADA, UK and as u say AUS. if u have any information pls guide me which will be better. Thanks.

    Just about every school will try to help you secure a job(unless they just don't care about their students), but again, that's no guarantee of a job.

    Most masters programs require you to already be a RN. Direct entry masters programs don't require you to be an RN, but will require you to get it about a year or so after you start. Some schools will require you to work as an RN before completing the masters portion of the program.

    At that point, most states will require permanent residency. I think some states will grant a license without a social security number, but I'm not really sure on how that all works. If you go to the nursing registration forum, there is a lot of useful information in there about getting RN licensure as a non-citizen.

    I do not think that clinical advanced practice nurse jobs (APN/NP) can be ever given to H1 holder as there are tons of perfectly qualified American candidates fighting for these positions. It can be different for a candidate who has some very relevant work experience but even this doesn't guarantee anything.

    You won't be able to study in the US on H1 unless you want to do it in your spare time. H1 visa is given for "active workforce" only, and if holder loses his/her full-time job, he has to find a new one very quickly (I do not remember exact time but it used to be around 90 days or so) or pack bags and go home. If you enter USA with the goal of studying, you'll have to get F1 ("student visa"). It is relatively easy to get nowadays, but your ability to get job will be extremely limited while on it and so those Master's programs which require students to actually work as nurses during any period of study time won't accept you. You may be rejected by other programs because F1 holders are not required to pass full security clearance and may not be permitted to do clinicals.

    I'm an immigrant myself, and that's what I know: immigration in the USA is possible but there is no quick and easy ways to do it (except to win the heart of a millionaire, maybe ). It is a journey, and it can take a decade to even get close to your goals. Do your homework and think about your career in terms of immigration - it helps. Look at other options - research, for instance. Good Luck!

    In normal times a masters is a plus and a door opener but now it doesn't really mean much. I have a masters degree and it didn't really help me to get a job right out of school. I would even say that it might even hinder you because hiring managers are looking for more basic experience vs. more knowledge which is associated with a masters degree. Knowledge is expensive and they are looking for savings and bargains. In the long run it will help you and it is a great asset you can pull off your sleeve.

    Hi katie, i know that for studying i require a student visa which is F1 and on that i wont be allowed to wrk as nurse full flegedly. But after the course is over i can opt for OPT visa and work as a nurse full time in the mean time converting OPT to H1b.Correct me if i am wrong. By the way while working on an OPT can i join some hiring agency who can provide me H1 or is it easy to find on an own. Salary is not a problem, first i need to get a base. Thanks.

    The only problem is that people are finding it is taking around 6 years to be granted the h1b visa. And that's after you find someone to sponsor you. It's hard for employers to justify sponsoring non-citizens because of the surplus of citizens in the market.

    You cannot apply forH1B visa on your own. You must be sponsored by an employer. Many employers are not sponsoring right now since the US unemployment rate is very high and there are many USC & PR qualified for positions and thus don't require the added expense of visa sponsorship.

    There are no US schools that can guarantee job placement. No one can guarantee a job.

    H1B visa has lot of limitations, and the main one is that you can only work with the company/hospital that sponsors the visa for you. If you want to work with another company then they has to transfer the visa to their name. Now it is very hard to find anyone to sponsor a visa. So the first thing to figure it out is to get the immigration status that is the right to work. Unfortunately immigrating to US is a very long painful process now. I don’t think any travel nursing or some company will spend their money to sponsor anyone at this time. The only wishful thinking is the US economy is going through cycles and at some point we will get a bounce and things get better.
