    hi, i actually have a similar dilemma as PROVERBS. I intend to apply for licensure in New Mexico but would eventually want to work in NY. I've been browsing the forums for the last couple of hours, but so far I haven't seen a clear cut answer to these questions:

    1. If I get my license in NM and want to endorse, how long would it take me to finally be licensed in NY?

    2. Will having a license in NY allow me to work there as a nurse while my VisaScreen is processed?

    Thanks a lot in advance! :spin:
    If you are wanting to work in NY then you have to follow requirements of foreign trained nurse which means CVS you can not just endorse your license. VSC is a requirement for immigration and obtaining a work permit so without it you can not work especially at the moment with retrogression you can not go to the US with intent of going through the AOS as currently no visas to adjust and do not expect this route to open up for a few year. Also if AOS route is open you need VSC when starting the file. You really need to have a good read in the International forum as many nurses are effected by retrogression and expect it for a few years unless something is sorted especially for countries like Philippines, India and China where the demand for work visas are much higher than many other countries

    Are they a good employer, are they supportive of their nurses?
