i am a new grad student. i will be taking my nclex in the summer. i have a special circumstance.
i came to the u.s. when i was only 5 years old. my family currently has an approved petition to obtain legal residency. throughout college i was an ab540 student, meaning i am undocumented.
now that i am graduating, i am really having a hard time finding a job. i chose nursing because in the past hospitals have granted nurses permanent residency. i was hoping to take this route. however, now i know that hospitals are not that desperate for nurses anymore.
does anyone have any recent information about hospitals sponsoring nurses? what us states would i have most luck in finding this opportunity? i need some advice. should i just go back to grad school until something changes?

I would look into the local hospital in Pecos, Texas. I know for a fact that they were willing to sponsor another foreign nurse not too long ago.
By the way, all of your threads have been merged into one discussion.
