    According to your first post you do not have hospital experience, are ah advanced practice in a outpatien t nursing speciality? If not you do not qualify for H1b. Otherwise when your tourist visa expires you must return home and wait your place in retrogression and go to plan b.

    Yes, I dont have hospital experience as a licensed nurse though I had lots of hospital affiliations when I was still a student. Thanks for the advice, really helped me a lot. And yes, I understand the capacity of my tourist visa and I have no intentions of staying long and violate immigration laws.

    Thanks Krissyprissy, you don't have any experience that any new grad has, and in one way worse since your experience was not here in the USA, and you can not network with your instructors and nurse managers for any US positions even if you had the right to work. Unfortunately you will have to enter the retrogression que and wait until your PD is called. Many hospitals are no longer sponsoring nurses since the wait is so long and the expense so high to employ a new grad and even more expensive to hire a foreign grad.

    I would enjoy your tourist visa, visit this beautiful country, visit family, and follow up with Plan B ( Work in other countries ).

    Thanks Ginger's mom! I would have to agree, I love travelling in the US and there's just lots of places to see. I'm visiting the States again this June. I'm also thinking about studying MSN there, but maybe it would cost a lot since I'm not an immigrant.

    Yes fees are generally a lot higher when classed as International

    Most MSN programs require some experience. Applying for scholarships, take the GRE exams and do well, it will make you a more impressive candidate.

    MSN alone won't allow you to immigrate, but it can help.
