Hospitals that provide the sponsorship.

  1. I live in Kentucky, and would be graduated in 2008. My friend will be graduated this year. She already tried to find some information about hospitals that can give a sponsorship, But none of them is no longer provide sponsorship for foreign nurses. Yup, I think, In the Kentucky there's no more nurse shortage over there.
    Any body can help me to share the information about hospitals or states that still giving a sponsorship.

    thank you in advanced for your response. :spin:

    are you asking for sponsorship or petition? Better to ask for petition. Plenty of places/states offering petition but you need to know where to go

    Thank's Anna.

    I'm sorry, I don't know what petition is ? If I get a petition, does it mean, I will get a sponsorship ? What kind of places that can give me a petition ?

    Thank you

    For the green card, it is a petition that is filed for you. You still have more than 18 months to go before you will be ready and have taken and passed the NCLEX exam.

    Sponsorship was based pn temporary work permits that are no longer available.

    Also depends on where your friend was applying and how many new grads that they have in that particular area.

    I would not worry about that right now........if you are an F-1 student, do suggest that you get the CPT when it is available for you to work, that will give you a foot in the door, as we call it, with a facility.

    Thank you Suzanne, I appreciate your response.

    It's little bit clear now, I will ask more questions when I close to my graduation.

    thank you
