    Work visa or immigrant visa?

    Work visa will depend on how the H1b visas are going and if all gone your employer cannot file until April with Oct start unless the employer isn't capped and not many hospitals have that option. Immigrant visa then you are looking at 6+ years wait currently and no you can not work whilst waiting for the immigrant visa is processed

    thank you for the response.. :spin: but what do you mean with "unless the employer isn't capped"? thank you

    Mainly universities are the ones that are not capped and not affected by the April filing

    for the evaluation, it says we need transcripts from all the schools, what if the grades from other previous schools are already incorporated in the the Nursing program transcript, do we still need to have the other transcripts sent to CGFNS? Or is it ok to send that ONE transcript that has all other 'stuff' incorporated in it?

    2nd question. if the school indicated that the method of teaching and books were in english? Does graduates from the philippines still need to take toefl for the VSC?

    thanks.

    For US educated nurses (F1 status)
    what is the exact deadline you need to get your visa screen checked by?? Before OPT starts?
    I just found out about the visa screen recently and my state (Washington) needs CES

    I was wondering when to get a visa screen in relation to my NCLEX exam (which will be in mid-end of June) and my OPT (which I hope will start near August)

    Thank you

    Visa screen isn't required for OPT but when you have a interview for H1b, TN or immigrant visa. If you trained in the US then you shouldn't need CES as your training should already meet requirements
