I heard it applied to PIC,anyway what is CVS?I think your wrong there about hospitals not petitioning foreign nurses ,I had a hospital petition without my NCLEX unless its changed in the last few months
You are incorrect. Hospitals cannot even start the petition process unless you have actually passed the NCLEX-RN or the CGFNS Exam. Does not matter what you heard, but to be petitioned as an RN via an employer requires proof that you are an RN. And it is by one of these two exams only, not the licensure exam for your country. So not sure how you had the process started. And it also requires written verification from the actual Board of Nursing to be submitted with your petition. Immigration will not even accept the petition without proof that you have passed one of the above exams. Suggest that you take the time to read the sticky at the top of this forum called the "Primer." It contains information that you need, and I suspect that you do not have.
There has been a retrogression in place for all nurses since October 31 of last year, and not just from the PIC countries. That was the previous retrogression.
In order to get a license in the state of NY, you must have a CVS done by CGFNS. It is a special credentials eval and is specific only to NY. It also takes on average about 8 months to get done. We have not seen a hospital in NY petition a foreign nurse in a couple of years without significant experience, or that the student trained in the NY. And most facilities will not even talk to you until you pass the NCLEX exam, and they legally cannot even offer you a job until you have passed the NCLEX. So by stating that you had a facility that would petition without anything is just not happening.
Please take the time to do some reading. There is much information here that you can learn. And to add in to it, there are no visas currently available for anyone, no matter which country that you are from. And no Schedule A either. And no Adjustment of Status if you come to the US to try that route.
