  1. Is it Possible to use Travel Nursing as a Way to Relocate?
    I know people who did that and I think that's not a bad idea. This way you know if you like the place and they know if they like you. This is a good, low risk option, in my opinion.

  9. what are eligibility criteria for a BSN to get a H1B
    Labor certification for H1-B is much simpler than for Green Card. I think it is quite obvious that if there is an employer willing to sponsor a WOC nurse, there are no other qualified candidates.
