    Many US citizen DE masters candidates have difficulty securing employment in various areas of the US. Most major metropolitan areas are not seeking inexperienced new grad nurses regardless if the have a diploma, ASN, BSN, or MSN. The major areas are in search of experienced, specialized nurses with 5+ years paid experience in a specialty area such as critical care, NICU, PICU, OR, LDRP. Very few facilities are able to show that they cannot secure a new grad US citizen or permanent resident to gain authorization to go through the cost & time of sponsoring a new grad. Your country of birth will affect your eligibility for sponsorship due to retrogression. Many international nursing students have significant difficulty securing OPT since it takes a lot of time and cost to train, orient and precept an inexperienced new grad nurse. OPT is only for a year so for nursing the cost to benefit ratio is not always favorable.

    Impossible? No. But difficult and requiring a lot of work seeking a willing sponsor as well as marketing yourself.

    Yes!

    See I have done a lot of research and spoken to a few people who have done similar things to what I'm asking. There was a few websites who told me they could take me and my family over once I was given a job, do you think this is unlikely?
    Yes, very unlikely. First, UK nurses are specialty trained. US nurses are generalist trained. Your transcript must reflect clinical & theory hours in adult med/surg, geriatrics, pediatrics, maternity/obstetrics and psych/mental health. Unless you are generalist trained with 5-10 years experience in a coveted specialty area such as cardipthoracic OR, NICU, PICU, etc there are dozens of US educated nurses seeking employment. The potential for this wish is further reduced for major metropolitan areas such as NY, Chicago, California as these areas are coveted areas with a surplus of US citizen & PR nurses inexperienced and experienced often several dozen if not a hundred applying for a single job opening resulting in no incentive for an employer to be willing to sponsor. You would be a new grad and unqualified for specialist visas. The employer would have a difficult time proving a specialty trained UK nurse is a better candidate than the locally trained generalist nurses who don't need sponsorship. Most healthcare employers have tended to only sponsor the employee but permitted the employee to add on family at employee cost.

    Many websites say a lot of fantastic things but it does not make the statement true

    Every year, the NCLEX-RN exam becomes more tough to pass.
    Every 3 years it's updated. Not annually

    Very much agree. I do medically complex pedi home health. One of my former classmates oriented to my case that I am primary for, she told me the patient was soooo cute and so were his siblings. However when faced with a 12 hr shift that your going non stop (even nap time requires monitoring) she changed her tune. She seemed afraid of the patient. Afraid to troubleshoot the feeding pump. Unsure which tube got mess & which got the food in a JG set up. She thought it would be like babysitting. Now she does the late teens who mostly require monitoring and can communicate somewhat. I have to double check med doses each time my pts weight or status changes. There is a huge knowledge base necessary. Plus, when it comes to labs or stable patients pedi to are stable until they are not. The lab ranges often have a more narrow critical range than adults. One decimal point off and serious harm can be done.

    Have you completed Nurse Anesthetist training?
    Do you mean nurse aesthetician training? As nurse anesthetist (CRNA) is a very different field from plastics/aesthetics/cosmetic surgery.

    Supervisor veri cation is necessary to con rm the applicant:
    1. is currently credentialed as an LPN/LVN, a paramedic, or a speci c military medical classi cation;
    2. is employed in a setting that requires direct patient care, including performance or opportunity for observation of common nursing
    psychomotor skills; and
    3. has completed at least 200 hours of employment in this practice setting within the calendar year prior to signing this form.
    This is in addition to TEAS so those not working as a nurse or medic, including fresh LPN grads not yet employed are not eligible for the program. The verification is only valid 3 months. There have been quite a few students over recent years posting here and other forums struggling with theory exams and panicking over FCCA and CPNE having zero nursing experience. The program was intended as a bridge for working LPNs, medics, military medics etc.

    Out of state lawyers are not applicable. If you are in NY you need an attorney experienced in labor/employment and immigration. Comparing to your peers out of state is not a valid argument to dispute your contract. There is no guarantee they have the exact same scenario as you. You need to focus only on your situation. What proof do you have for prevailing wage for the region where you work? $29/hr is a reasonable starting wage for many areas for a nurse with zero US experience. Company paid benefits are extremely rare these days especially in the north east.

    Again lawyers in TX and CA told you the contract is unenforceable in their state however you are not in TX or CA so their advice is as good as ours...

    You were banned for document fraud. An incident like may follow you in the future; in many countries that is illegal. Failing to disclose moving forward is also fraudulent. Advocating for false documentation and fraud is not recommended and you will eventually get caught. Perhaps consider another career?

    Yes and it would likely violate your employers policies. Other family members might object. Just don't do it.
