1. Any international nurse here who got a visascreen then sought out her own job? Or did you'll all just use a recruiter? I have fulfilled all the prerequisites for a visascreen up to the time of asking

    You can do it yourself without employer or use of an agency

    Thanks for replying. Do you know of anyone who could provide mentorship after getting the visascreen? E g. What steps did they take in successfully getting a job after getting the visascreen? Most nurses in my home country are using recruiters but I would want to try it on my own. The process seems daunting and I'm not being advised to go forward with my attempt at getting a visascreen then seeking a job

    Until you have employer willing to go the immigrant route I would suggest waiting to get vsc. Starting point would be contacting hospitals in the areas you want to live and work in and ask about sponsorship

    Thanks. Why should I wait until I've identified an employer before I get a Visascreen? I do appreciate your advice. I just would like to understand your perspective more. Thanks again

    Vsc is only valid for 5 years and not really required until getting ready to live in the US, ie approx 12 months before approximate visa priority date is current. A lot will depend on place of birth.

    Thanks again. Visa priority date depends on paperwork processed by immigration lawyer or employer?

    Is it possible that we could speak by private message?

    Priority date is when paperwork submitted by employer is accepted and approved by nvc

    Thanks. Currently in a job in my home country. What tips do/can you suggest in terms of résumé Preparation and job search?

    My thoughts in getting a visascreen before leaving my home country would be that given its duration it would allow me to search for a job in the country without hassle while looking for a job. It's kinda hard looking for a job online

    Vsc doesn't make finding a job any easier and doesn't give right to stay in a country whilst looking for work
