H1-B visas are not valid for RNs currently and have not been for more than three years. The only thing that will be effective is that more visas are created and do not expect to see that done now.
There is an entire new House of Representatives coming into power in January, and even if something were to pass now, it can be vetoed as well in the next few months.
Creating visas for foreign nurses does not make any immediate changes to the shortage of nurses. There are imigration processes that need to be completed, and even when they will be created, they are not released immediately.
