    Never apply to CA with the direct idea of going to Nevada, makes no sense at all.

    If you took the June exam, you do not have a license number and really need to wait. Many issues are appearing in the US now on a daily basis, and you are not going to get the CES completed until there is actually a license number, CGFNS cannot issue it without that number since you did take the exam.

    That advise re:applying to california and getting an endorsement was given to me by a friend. Thanks to you I'm kind of getting a clearer picture of what to do now. She says endorsement only takes a couple of weeks and you just need to give them an application plus the added fee. That's what she did.

    I guess I'm just trying to evade the added expense of applying for CES Come to think of it, it's either you go through it the easy and cheap way: thru calif, or pay the extra hundred bucks and get a faster service: thru nevada.

    I thought she didn't take the nurse licensure last june so I said she didn't need a license. But then, the situation is different if she did take the exam. Best thing to do is to wait for PRC to release a decision before applying for anything.

    Thanks samantha. You're such a big help. And sorry if i confused anyone..

    Sorry but with retrogression you will not be getting to the US asap. If you want to live in Nevada then apply directly there. Much easier and in the long run will save money.

    Current processing in 2002 for EB3 and no way to do adjustment of status by going to the US

    As Anna mentioned, even with taking and passing of the NCLEX exam, and even having an employer to petition you; you are looking at about five years before you will be able to work and remain in the US.

    What your family wants you to do is a moot point as far as immigration goes, and there just are no visas available. Would not consider anything that can get you a big chance at getting deported. That would be for ten years with no chance of entering the US under any circumstance.

    Please take the time to do some reading here, there is no hurry in getting licensed as you cannot get a visa at this time.

    ouch.. this is going to be tough.. that's what i'm trying to tell my parents.. told them i'll be stuck here for at least 2 years.. my friends waited that long before they were able to leave our country.. and they had agencies acting out on their behalf..

    will it make any difference if i applied for a working visa, not an immigrant one? i' confused..:innerconf

    The only one available is Green card and to be honest a much better one to have. Although H1B is not available for nurses you will see people talking about them, They accept applications in April and within hours are gone with more or less lottery allocation. Also H1B is less protected and once you loose your job you have a short period of time and then have to leave. Employer can also pay whatever they want where as with GC they have to pay you the same as other US nurses.

    The time frame that it took in the past to get a visa is now longer in place, it is now about five years and there is no longer a guarantee that you will ever be able to get a green card thru an employer. There are now many more applicants than there are visas available per year.

    There have not been any working visas available for more than 3 1/2 years for nurses. So this was never a viable option for you. You need to deal with what is happening now, not what did.

    The fact is that there has been a retrogression in place since 10/06 and we do not know when it will end. Add to that fact that there are already many with completed files ahead of you in line for a visa, you have not taken the NCLEX exam yet, nor have a Visa Screen Certificate. Length of wait is going to increase, not decrease due to the number of students now enrolled in nursing schools in your country. The US has less than 10,000 visas available and that includes spouses and children and those from other professions that qualify for the EB-3 visa as well.

    You may wish to get experience in another country while you are waiting, expecting the US to require that again.

    Again the big issue is that you took the NLE exam, a local license is not needed, but if you take the exam, then you need to submit a license number. Currently, there is no legal proof that you passed that exam, as PRC is not issuing licenses right now. This is what is going to cause you issues.

    There would have been not one issue if the exam was not done in the first place.

    And you do not put that the recipient BON does not require a local license. The CES can always be used by more than one state.
    quick question for ms. suzanne,

    I took my NCLEX under Nevada BON last January of 2005. Im a RN in the Philippines. I passed the NCLEX and NEVADA BON sent me a letter saying they will not issue a permanent license without a SSN. I haven't renewed anything from then on. Now, I have an employer from Maryland...my question is...how do I get my license from Nevada. Do i need to renew it and pay some fees or do I have to take the exam again? Pls do help me.
