Specializes in Medical and general practice now LTC. Has 35 years experience.

The issue is retrogression and the 6 plus years wait you have for a immigrant visa once you have found a employer and they file for a EB3 immigrant visa (usual visa for nurses). H1b is an option if you have a specialised skill and a minimum of BSN.

Only real thing you can do is contact hospitals in the area you plan on living
