    HI vanon.

    I have not heard anything from landbase about the employers' decision.. And now I am wondering if they will hire me as well.. How long have you wait for them to call you? I hope to be considered.. Do the facility really have the openings for job?? or just training then afterwards will be sent home??? thanks.
    yes we are really in need of hemodialysis rns, the patients are kept on coming and we are short of staff. you can call the center if you want.... best of luck.

    Hi! I'm an RN here in the Philippines with a VSC and work experience in a special area. An agency here in manila has offered me an opportunity for an H1b visa by looking for an employer who will file an H1b for me. Three days after I applied in the said agency, they notified me that there is already an employer in Illinois who is willing to file the visa for me after reviewing my resume. I asked them when will be my interview, but they said there's no more interview because the employer will just base his decision to accept or reject applicants based on their resumes. They said that I'm all set for filing my application in the USCIS this coming april. They asked me to come to their office, sign the contract, and pay all the fees which is more than $3K, even without having a talk with their employer. That made me suspicious about their process. I searched for any reviews regarding the employer but I only found their address and phone number, so I called the office in Illinois several times but nobody answered the phone. Im doubting if my employer really exist. Now, I'm confused if I should pay the fees and proceed with my application or better not? Is it possible that my visa application will be filed even if I did not have any formal talk with the employer that the agency has given me? Is it enough that the agency will just tell me that I was accepted based only on my resume and not straight from the emplyer thru an interview? Is this a scam?

    I really need good opinions. April 1 is nearing and I need to make a concrete decision ASAP. Thanks!

    and just what everybody told here.. i dont want to try it.. its a large amount of money to just to try my "LUCK".. to risky...

    but still its up to you.. they already have successful h1b filing.. back in 2008.. I havent heard about 2009... they are having problems about that...

    If they are wanting you to try H1b then they have to pay fees not you. That is part of the H1b process employer pays all fees

    Yes but an agency can charge you whatever they want to join the agency that is going to get the H1B.

    There's no way I would hand out that much money without having even spoken to the employer.

    I do believe that st. judes renal facility in Saipan is short on nurses, but I seriously doubt they are hiring and that they are helping people with work visas. Due to the transition of Saipan into federal immigration the only options for working are H-visas and that requires posting positions (none are listed in local papers or the CNMI Department of Labor), and Guam prevailing wages which are 2-3 times higher than what st. judes renal currently pays.

    The pay for classes at IBPC on a CNMI issued student visa, and volunteer at st. judes option ended on November 28, 2009 and all off-island, employees will need a U.S. visa until the USCIS regulations for the CW transitional worker visa are issued.

    For nurses graduating or looking for a job, they may be able to volunteer at st. judes, but to say they are hiring and processing a working visa is misleading. Correct me if i'm wrong, but don't they have 5+ volunteers there right now, and if st. judes is really hiring, why don't they hire the people already there?

    Hi there, I am just starting to look at this daunting process of working as a nurse in the States!! Would you mind telling me the name of the international recruiter you contacted. Currently its seems a closed door situation.
    Thanks heaps.
