Lpn To Green Card?

  1. If I complete the LPN degree in the states (I'm canadian), can I get green card sponsorship??? Or is it necessary to have an ADN or BSN? I'm hoping to work for a large prestigious hospital.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Unfortunately, the LPN does not qualify for US immigration. It requires that you have RN after your name in order to get petitioned for the green card.

    It has nothing to do with licensure, as you could get that. But the issue is that you need a visa that will permit you to work. Even if you get it in the US, it will make no difference.

    If you go to the Canadian Forum, there is a thread about a school that has a bridge program that is in I believe Michigan, and there are quite a few Canadians that go there.

    Best of luck to you.
