    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.
    how does one become a specialized nurse? is that any different from a BSN?

    Work in a specialized area, such as ICU, OR, it must be verifiable experience and it helps to take a certification test. When you work in the specialty the nurses will guide you.

    What is your speciality?

    hi to those who are applying H1B visa or has already applied and waiting for approval. Just a few questions to asked, but first of all let me tell you something about myself. I have passed NCLEX exam and currently working in ICU here in Europe. My questions are do you know of any employer in US that sponsor H1B nowadays?and what are the basic and other requirements needed to apply a H1B visa?Do advances courses pertaining to your current speciality advisable?and that should be based on US based curiculum/system? Hope someone out there would try to answer my questions please. Thank you.

    Your training needs to be BSN or equivalent and being specialised will help in finding a employer.

    Hi lemuel, when did you submit your application and how?
  11. by   nursemich
    Hi salve, thank you for the message. I just emailed them my querries and my resume. I just want to ask if you already have your visascreen when you applied?
  12. by   salveapril
    yes, i got the complete documents when applied to them.. maybe it would be better coz visa screen states that you met the requirements by the USCIS and you are eligible to get a US visa..

    hi, lemuel!
    you can check the status of your case thru USCIS website "case status online", you just need your receipt number written on the top left side of the letter from USCIS.. i think, the usual processing times for Vermont SC is 3 months, but maybe it also depends on each case.. mine is from CA service cntr, according to their processing times, 2 months for the H1B, but it took only 2 weeks to approved.. i'm not so sure if my petitioner paid for premium processing ( usually takes 2 wks, and its quite expensive). again, good luck and God Bless!
