    Hi,

    Not heard anything about retrogression!!! We are the final hurdle just waiting for the US interview. What happens now? can anyone advise please?
    OGP say that the hospital that has offered me a job in the US wont want me unless i sign the new contract therefore it will slow down our immigration process. Coroprate bullying on an international scale!
    can anyone recommend any other Companies.
    Any advice greatfully received

    Now it is a case of wait for visas and interview, no telling at the moment how long that is going to last. If you go with another company or direct hire unfortunately it will affect your visa and you will I believe have to restart the process all over again. OGP is pulling a lot of dirty moves at the moment and not sure what to advice on that side of things

    I read this posts recently only.I'm also stuck and fed up with ogp.I passed RN in 2005 ,offeered placement in newjersy (where i wanted to go) in april 2006 and asked me to wait for the NJ license and visa.Got my visa in july 2006 .Ogp asked me to wait for the NJ license ,nov 2006 ogp informed me that they dont want to sent their nurses to the hospital where i had job offer from anymore becuse of some problems and said will continue searching for job in NJ while i wait for NJ licencse.They did make me sign their new contracT(PARTNERS SIGNATURE AS GUARENTEE AND INCREASED THE CONTRACT BREECHING AMOUNT) as the two options infront of me was leave without anything or sign the new contract.my initial 6 months US visa was due to expire in jan 2007 so me and my family travelled to US and activated our greencard and recieved my SSN.Recieved my NJ license in end of jan 2007 and ogp stil have no placement offer for me.I have no peace of mind .I sold my house because i was ready to be moved on aug2006 as said by OGP.i'm renting atpresent.I joined ogp to make my relocation easier but this is what i'm going through.The communications by the team of ogp birmingham office is also appalling.

    Hi Evelina,
    Can you find a employer yourself since you have your NJ registration and SSN, or do you have to wait for OGP to find you one?
    I'm trying to move to NJ as well. It seems that not many agencies have hospitals there. Just thinking whether should join OGP. I'm planning to take NCLEX next month (New Mexico). How long did it take for your NJ registration to come through?
    Thanks a lot

    yes i can ...if a pay the contract breeching amount to ogp they says.they rung me up couple of days before and said they haven't got any hospitals in newjersy atall ...kept me waiting since jan 2005.now they r looking for job nearby newjersy state.ogp have lots of jobs if ur willing to relocate to anywhere in usa...like newmexico,neworleans,lousiana...etc..this is my experience with ogp.newjersy didn't give me license till i has ssn and green card.i waited 12 months for license just because i did n't had ssn.i got my ssn when i went to us becz my initial 6 months visa was due to expire and ogp didn't had any placement offers,so i went to get my green card before 6 months expires and applied for the ssn same time and got it.and nj license been issued after submitting all these at once.
