Hello folks! I am new to this web site. I passed my RN & LVN boards only last month. Since I am just a tourist here, I need a sponsor/petitioner to be able to work legally here in CA. As a new graduate, i know my petitioner/employer would put me in the med/surg unit or telemetry where there is really a staff shortage. We all know how stressful these areas are and i think it's not my dream to be in there, but when an alien is looking for a job there's nothing left but to accept where they will put me. But the problem is, i am suffering from Endometriosis, experiencing severe pain every ovulation and monthly period. I know i wouldn't perform my job with such pain everynow and then. My doctor advise me to get pregnant because the tumor might spread in my uterus that might give another complications, aside from i'm on my late 30's already. I am very confuse now. I need a job to be legalized here & at the same time to have a baby now. Which area would you think is less stressful for me so that i can work as a nurse and at the same time can give me a chance to conceive?
I am doing job hunting nowadays. I have 5 in my listings, 3 big hospitals (350+ beds) and 2 community hospitals ( -200 beds).Where do you think I would be better off? One hospital told me that they would not give me a contract but i will be tied up to the hospital until after my green card process is finished (almost 1yr & 6 mos i hope). Is that a good agreement? I've got a good hospitals in my hand but i am afraid that they would not petition me if they will know my condition. That's why i am counting on your advice before i will be called for an interview. Thank you so much!!:)
