    I am glad you are making sure you are not being mislead as if anything goes wrong you will be held more accountable than your lawyer. However looking at the link it talks about experienced/specialist occupation and whether the beneficiary is in possession of a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or doctoral degree in the health care occupation. As a new grad you do not meet these requirements. I personally would be looking for a second opinion

    Hi..yes, RFE is request for further evidence which is the same with request for additional evidence. Hope this helps..

    Hi. I just found out that my application was already transfered from my agency TO MY LAWYER last Aug 17 for review. I just would like to know the usual timeframe for the lawyers to review documents before they can send the file to USCIS for visa application.
    Its taking so long since I applied last June and upto now my application has not been sent yet to USCIS for H1b application.

    That's a question you need to ask your attorney. Every attorney is different depending on their case load. It's priority just like in nursing. The attorneys will work on case loads that are going to being them more money. To them, that's the priority. But consider that they have other cases and so they have to work a little at a time and what's a priority to them. The more money you give them, the faster they work on your case.

    Lawyers tend to do things in bulk so a lot will depend on how many others the lawyer is doing. This is something you need to ask your lawyer and agency

    Im waiting for my notice of receipt. My employer told me its somewhere in May or early June. Hope this works. I think the H1b visa is good only for Specialized nurses. Like nurses in the ICU, HDU, or any specialized area.
    hi LemuelRN. I am also waiting for my notice of receipt. My employer told me that my papers has been passed to the USCIS last 1st week of August.. but still haven't received anything yet.... Did you get your notice already.. your reply will be deeply appreciated! thanks!

    If someone filled their paperwork in LAST June (?2008?) and it hasn't been submitted, there's a problem. Even if you meant this June of 2009, then why have they had it 2 months? Any day the visas could run out for the year. This is the problem you get when the lawyer works for the agency and not you.

    may i ask:
    1. how can you be considered as an advanced nurse?
    2. is having a master's degree qualify to that title (advanced nurse)? i don't know if i can be qualified but;
    3.what if an employer in the US approves your application regardless of the experience or specialty? does these consular officers still have the right to deny me a visa?
    ** help me about these cause i think an employer is willing to support me about the process......pls....:typing

    Specialist nurse is usually experience in a specialised area. If you have a employer and you meet the requirements for the visa being applied for you can still be denied, although I do not think it happens that often, if the officer feels that something is missing. Your job has to meet requirements so if employed as a specialist nurse then you have to be working in that field.

    Your training needs to be BSN or equivalent and being specialised will help in finding a employer.
    Hi Silverdragon. Is a 6 month work experience in a specialized field qualify one for H1B visa among other things?

    no at six months you are still a beginner, to be competent you would need to be able to pass a certification test which most require 1-3 years experience.
  13. by   NurseCubanitaRN2b
    Must the experience in the field be current? Or can there be a time lapse? What I would like to know is where is everyone getting this information about obtaining a H1b visa when they don't qualify for it?

    Everyone seems to be trying to take the easy way out. If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
