hi... I am an international student pursuing my masters in industrial management.. but now i transferred to do nursing for pursuing my registered nurse course... so after completion can i file for H-1 visa......?
HI! Is this the H-1B Visa? I know of a helpful website, hold on and I'll post it for you (see below)!
Try the above website, it is a fairly clear explanation of the new H-1B laws and how they relate to Nurses. It seems H-1B is only eligible for Nurses who come to work in states that require RN's to have a Bachelor's degree. The only state with this requirement is North Dekota. I would think this means you can come to N. Dekota with you H-1B, and then work there while you apply for your green card.
I hope this helps a little!
(here is just a little more basic info on the same site, you may already know all of this information, but it may be helpful)
Moved to the International forum
H1b is a specialist visa and as a new grad you generally do not meet requirements. Things may have changed by the time you complete your training but expect to be affected by retrogression or problems getting a H1b visa
I do hope you are doing the nurse course for the right reason and not a way of staying in the US.
Wow! That's quite a change of heart--going from a graduate course in industrial management to nursing.
Interesting how you are posting in a nursing forum, but aren't asking anything about nursing. Your main concern seems to be how you can qualify for a visa. Do you have any interest at all in nursing?
Please try not to step on any patients in your race to the visa office... :chair:
