    but what you are talking about doing is illegal as you are in the country on a visitors visa.
    if you want to seek work and apply for h1 b then you need to go home first.do not risk getting a black mark against your name.
    again it is very unlikely that you will get h1 b anyway.

    hi im also have a tourist visa, currently here at california, lawyers said that it is ok for applying for a change of status from a tourist to working, but, you should stayed for atleast 60-90 days here at the us and you have a employer to sponsor you, there's nothing wrong with that! we all need to find job, its just her way to find one.

    but they are right, 6mos. experience doesnt fit to a h1b, so the best thing you can do is go home, get back to work in a special area, and find an employer while you are working, try to pass the ielts and obtain a visa screen as well. ok!

    You must have a very inexperienced lawyer. You can apply for an adjustment of status, but it's highly discouraged as INS is going to red flag you right away and you will still have to wait the many many years that people are waiting in order at a chance for a visa. But if you're looking at a H1b visa you might get one, but will still get red flagged as you're here on a tourist with the soul purpose to adjust your visa. Which you're abusing the tourist visa with what you're attempting to do anyway.

    Joyce it sounds like you don't qualify for a H1b visa. I also want to mention that they're investigating H1b visa holders in California (unsure about other states) because of people abusing that particular visa. If it turns out that it's being abused a lot, you never know the government might just do away with those visas. That's why the laws constantly changing because of people who abuse priviledges, and that goes for everyone, not just foreigners. If your caught using a visa that you don't qualify for, you might be deported and wont have the priviledge of returning for several years. Think long and hard about what type of visa you apply for because in the end the consequences exceed far more than the visa is worth. Good Luck
    how come that an applicant has given the H1b visa without knowing yet or checking first if this applicant is qualified? i mean, you'll be given the visa first then, when you start working a background investigation will proceed? I don't understand. when will the checking of qualification took place? thanks!

    To be issued a visa the lawyer/employer has to prove that the applicant meets job requirements and that they can not employ someone either USC or PR. Checks are supposed to be done before the visa is issued and you attend a meeting supplying original documentation so that the visa officer can verify the originals. This is what I have seen written by others that have applied for H1b

    Getting visa approval doesn't guarantee that you will get the visa. The visa can still be denied when you go to your interview.

    to silverdragon,

    so you mean those who have given h1b visa then found out that they are not qualified is done by fraud?

    If they are found not to meet requirements they can have their visa revoked and could result in a ban

    so, in other words this is not likely to be possible at the moment with the whole shortage?
    what about hospitals outside of the city area?
    where there's not a lot of people and hospitals tend to be smaller?

    just a thought.

    There's not a shortage of nurses when you have a lot of RN's out of work. You can possibly find work in a small town in states where people don't particularly want to live. California, and almost any coastal (east and west) town you will find a surplus of local RN's.

    =================

    Silverdragon is correct.

    Just because the H-1B visa petition has been approved by the USCIS does not mean that the visa application at the Consular level will be approved as well.

    Petition approval by the USCIS does not guarantee visa issuance by the Embassy/Consulate.
