do you know which centre you i140 was filed with? even if nebraska they are only taking about 6-8 months whereas texas is quicker but you do not have any choice on which cenre. are you sure your agency filed i140? do you have a receipt number?

no good looking at the uk as recent immigration changes have made it hard for non eu nurses to get work permit plus will take you several months to go through the nmc process which will not guarantee job or work permit

Do you have your case number and following up your case status on your own or does an agency just give you the info?

I know people whose petitions were filed on the same month and their petitions were approved on the 1st half of Jan. 2007 via Texas Service Center.

we have a nebraska service center tracker thread here at allnurses.com

you may want to check it out: https://allnurses.com/forums/f75/nebraska-service-center-tracker-i-140-a-203470.html

people are reporting on that thread that it takes an ave. of 6-10 mos for nebraska. i think your case is the longest as of the current.

I recommend to actually go to http://www.uscis.gov and input your case number found on the right side of the webpage. I also recommend creating your own case status portfolio and just input your case number and provide your e-mail add. so that they can automatically update you via your e-mail if there are any updates on your case so that you do not have to go in the uscis website every time you want to check on it.

Do not depend on the dates found on this: https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/Processtimes.jsp?SeviceCenter=TSC

It is not updated regularly. It is only meant as a rough guide. As I said there are those who filed the same month as yours but were approved on Jan 2007.

Good luck. ;)
