    I'm an international nursing student myself. This might be a great news to all international nursing students out there and also may be a bad news to all the American nursing citizens that are struggling to get a job even though I don't think that is the case even with the bad US economy. My advisor told me today that international students that are graduating from siena heights nursing program are some how getting opportunities to work as nurses permanently in US. So to all the international students that have finished your ADN try to look more into finishing your BSN at Siena Heights University. I heard it's quite expensive but I think that it's worth the risk if you have a good chance staying and working in US as a nurse, right?
    How are they getting opportunities to stay permanently in the US. With EB3 under retrogression and New grad will not meet H1b requirements it would be interesting knowing how they are doing it?

    Yes, I agree how are new nursing grads bending the law? Or once again is is a ploy to separate a student from their money under false pretenses.

    From what I have read they are going to be asking you what qualified you for the H1B visa.

    For a H1B visa you must be advanced nurse, or have a talent that is beyond the staff nurse level or be in upper management. Staff nurse or BSN does not qualify.

    I agree to that it's such a lottery to get the h1B Visa. Just pray dat you will be one of the recipient. and dats wat im doing right now, really, praying so hard. my sponsor even told me that I was lucky enough my application was chosen among the applicants presented to the hospital director,knowing i dont have hospital experience and was in the Phils. I want to get out of Phils soon.. No hopes here, I've been a Phils RN for 3 years but as a company nurse. It's hard to land a job as full time staff nurse. I only got volunteer experiences in the hospital. Will it play a big deal to get the H1B visa? My employer did not require me to have an experience either.. After I passed the nclex and ielts in 2008, i already signed the contract Nov. '08 with a new york agency. My visa screen certificate was sent to their office address in new york, and then they filed the completed DS-230 form to USCIS. I can't wait anymore to be in New York, hope so visa will be granted soon..

    it's a GC, im just confused, i completed the DS-230 which is the application for Immigrant Visa here in the Phils. it was brought to New York by my sponsor since by then VSC was not yet released.

    its a GC, i completed the DS-230 form here in the Philippines, and it was filed in US.

    Please type in full english, your shortcuts are hard to read.

    I am confused by your posts as to what type of visa you've applied for. You do not sound like you qualify for a H1B visa if you have no hospital experience - volunteer experience does not count. You may get one, but you would be breaking the law and subject to deportation if your qualifications are falsified.

    Regarding the immigrant (green card) visa - there are no visa numbers available, especially if you just applied. It will not be fast to get to the US. I don't know what you mean that your VSC was not "released" - by whom?
