    EB3 VISA processes USA

    Okay I see what your saying. Then I just need to figure out if the lawyer tells me is true. Because the lawyer yelled me that all healthcare professional that has an accepted I-140 skip the line and get an interview right away.

    My thoughts are likewise. I should have contract with the employer first hand. Althought both company and lawyer says its alright as long as both employee (me) and employer has a contract with the law-firm. From my own research regarding time-frames. I've found this: " Your employer (with your help) completes a request for labor certification and sends it to DOL. The DOL's approval means it's confirming that no U.S. workers were available for the job and that you and your employer can go ahead with the process of applying for your green card. There's an exception to this requirement: A few types of jobs don't require labor certification, because they're on the Schedule A list of workers that are in short supply within the United States. Professional nurses and physical therapists have been on the Schedule A list for years." and "Registered nurses may enter the U.S. directly as a lawful permanent resident (LPR) or Green Card status. A benefit afforded to the nursing profession is that presently, the Petition for Alien Worker and U.S. Department of Labor classifies nursing as what is referred to as a "Schedule A" occupation. The advantage is that the oftentimes lengthy and expensive Labor Certification Process can be circumvented. LPR status also allows a nurse and his or her family to permanently reside in the U.S. through a sponsor after meeting certain requirements." So from my understanding, if I file with premium processing the process could take 3-6 months and then I'll be heading over to the US, and then after a few months in the US I'll get my GC. Premium processing means: You pay a fee and Premium Processing for I140 petitions is a service provided by the Department of Homeland Security (USCIS) that offers 15-day processing for certain employment-based petitions and applications. Haha, all this is so confusing, and since everyone says differently.. it's hard to know what to believe.. and it's actually quite a lot of money we're talking about I have to pay up.

    Right. So you’d say that what the first law firm says sound reasonable? 3-6 months before heading to the US and then 3-6 months after begin in the US to get my official green card? Also, may I ask? Maybe you don’t know but you sound very experienced or knowledgeable. The company tells me I don’t need to sign a contract with them but only with the law firm? In the contract with the law firm it says they represent both me and the company for a schedule A - I-140 application.. maybe it’s just me feeling insecure by not having a contract with the job itself.

    EB3 VISA processes USA

    Hi! I’m from Sweden and I have a few questions about immigration and EB3 Visas. I’m a Swedish educated Registered Nurse, BSN. I’ve been working as a RN for the past 2,5 years in Sweden. I’m licensed to practice as a RN in the state of NY, and I hold a Temporary License in Pennsylvania (currently waiting for my permanent license to be issued). I’ve passed the NCLEX (obviously, since I have my US RN licenses), I’ve got my VISA-screen certificate (which also means I passed the IELTS-test). So basically from my knowledge, I have everything that is needed for an EB3. I have an employer in the state of Pennsylvania that wants to hire me. They referred me to a law firm 1 that told me if I pay for premium processing I'll be over in the US within 3-6 months. If not 12 months +. This law firm says I'll get my GC after a few months being in America. However I wanted to double-check this so I asked another law firm (2) about the process.. and that law firm (2) tells me that its impossible to get an EB3 visa within 3-6 months and then have a GC in your hand a few months after you move. That you need a H1B visa move to the US, work and during the time you work - approx 2 years then you get a GC. So I have two law firms stating different things.. and now I don't know what to do? I've got a contract that I can sign and they will file my petition etc.. however.. I wanna make sure I get the EB3 visa not the H1B.. haha I'm so confused...

    Finding sponsored jobs

    Hi! I'm a Swedish educated RN, BSN. I finally got my license in the state of NY back in September 2019. But as of now, I also have my Visa-screen issued and ready!.. So the only thing that's left is a job. Without signing these 2-3 year long contracts through agencies, does anyone have a tip in how to find a job in the US that sponsor my Green card? 🙂

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    I needed more documents and a SNN to apply to PA directly. Made more sense to apply to New york

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    I did take the NCLEX and I'm now licensed in state of NY. Now I'm trying to endorse it to Pennsylvania which isn't the easiest without SSN and being out of the country to leave fingerprints etc...

    Finger prints for license

    I need to get a PA license. To get that I need to leave finger prints/ criminal background check. How do I go about to do this without being in America? 😕
  9. Hi! I have a few questions regarding my CES-report. So I did a CVS-report to get licensed in State of New York. It all went though and good, I got to sit the NCLEX exam, got my ATT - and last week I passed my NCLEX on my first try! Yay! 🙂 So now I'm just waiting to get my license issued. However now to my concerns. I also ordered a CES-report from CGFNS. In my report the state that I lack clinical hours of Maternity and infant nursing - that I have 0 hours. However I've called and talked to my school about it, and they figured and realised that they just lumping hours together in another category. My CES-report is saying the thing that differs me from someone with American education is the lack of those hours. Now my concern is that even if I passed NCLEX and will be licensed in the state of New York I'll have a hard time to endorse my license to other states. Does anyone have experience of that? Can I contact CGFNS about this issue and try to update my CES report? Or is that just giving me trouble? Or Should I go through ERES with the correct information regarding the clinical hours to easier endorse my licensure to other states? What would you do in my situation?

    Leave fingerprints NY-state

    Hello, I'm a Swedish RN, BSN. I just took the NCLEX in NYC yesterday.. I don't know if I passed yet, I'll buy my quick result tomorrow.. However I do get the "good" pop-up on PVT. Although my question is... IF I pass, do I need to leave fingerprints somewhere or do anything else to make them issue my license? Don't wanna go back home to Sweden this Sunday and forget about something :x

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    Thank you for motivating me! I saw the e-mail, thanks for the tip. I was in the low-range of passing. I will do the second assessment test this Tuesday when I get off work. My budget fits anything really, because I already invested so much time and money in this. But would you recommend the Saunders App for 40$ or should I buy two tests from NCSBN for 120$? Or get Kaplan as well? What should I study simultaneously with uWorld?

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    I've been trying to look at my first assessment score, but I can't for the sake of god find it. I just have the general data of all my tests. I bought the uWorld and assessments before I had gotten my ATT. That's why I didn't take it too seriously. Now when I've scheduled my exam and trip I obviously take it seriously. This is why I'm turning to this forum to ask for advice regarding techniques and tips what scores to aim for etc. I've been doing 75 questions per day for 2-3 weeks upping my score with 10-15%, like you can read in my first post. I have no choice but to take it, otherwise my ATT is running out.

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    Yeah I did! I did one assessment, however.. can't remember what result I got there, and didn't take it too serious lol. Ive got my second assessment left. When would be a good time to do that? I've considered buying NCSBN's own 2 question assessments. Does anyone recommend them? What score in %% on uWorld per test should I aim for?

    Flying out to NYC for NCLEX

    Hi. I'm a Swedish RN, BSN. 2 September I'm flying out to NYC to sit the NCLEX exam. I've been studying, quit a lot. Using Uworld, I've soon done the whole Q-bank. Usually I score 48-55%. I started out at 38-40% (lol). What can I do to improve my chances to pass? Anyone got any advice? Could u pass the NCLEX when scoring 48-55% on Uworld?
  15. Finally! After 18 months of struggling with NYSED and CGFNS, I'm finally eligible to sit the NCLEX!! Now I do have a few questions going further. 1.) With a NY RN license, is that a state that will make it "easy" to endorse/transfer my licence to other states (excluding California, I know its a hard to get a license there). 2.) How do I go about studying for the NCLEX? I graduated my BSN program 1,5 year ago. 3.) When I receive my ATT-code so I can schedule my NCLEX, for how long is that code usable? like what's the time spectrum until I need to sit the NCLEX? 4.) What happens if I fail? 5.) When (if, lol) I pass the NCLEX does anyone have any recommendations moving forward with a recruiting company or so? Thanks you everyone :) !
