    Hi, hoping silverdragon or RGN might see this post and advise me, as I know they are both British RN's who are now in Canada. I immigrated to the USA from the UK in 2006 and have worked continuously as an RN here since then. However, I'm ready for...
  2. She did not get ATT due to the deficient hours in OB and peds. However, the board members all seemed very willing to try assist her and this was their judgement, after discussion and questioning her about her UK training..... They will provide her...

    Hello Rachel, That's a shame your chosen BON are not being helpful with your questions. My friend was told the same when she applied to Florida BON......no hours in OB and paeds. However, they did not reject her outright. Instead, they have pas...

  5. If you are L2 visa, I take it your spouse is on L1? You say your visa expires next year.....is your spouse (or his company) not planning to apply for a renewal / extension then? Also, many companies who hire L1 employees go on to file for their green...
  6. {quote=Ginger's Mom;5708877]At my husband's employer all L1 visas were denied renewal. With the US economy in such tough shape an international company is only allowed so much time. Considering it is almost 2012, and you friend has not passed the NCL...

    Florida BON - Board Has to Approve

    Hi :) Sorry you did not get any help with your question. I have just found your post and would like to ask how it worked out for you at the board meeting? My friend is in the same situation for RN license. She is going to the next meeting on November...
  8. Thanks :) My friend's husband has an L1 visa and his company are petitioning him for a green card, and I believe that particular category is not subject to retrogression or a cap on numbers. As things are right now, their visas (L1 and L2) are valid ...

  11. OK, so now I have seen the letter my friend received from Florida BON. It states "you do not meet the minimum number of hours in pediatrics and obstetrics" Just wondering why they plan to review her case at their board meeting? If she does not meet t...
  12. Hi, My friend has had her UK transcripts evaluated and the report has been received by the Florida BON. She has received a letter from the BON saying "you are deficient in hours for pediatrics and obstetrics and your application will be discussed at ...
  13. Hello everybody :) I am trying to help a nurse (RN) who has relocated to Florida from England. She has been informed by the Florida BON she needs to make up some hours in Maternal Health and Pediatrics before she can write NCLEX. Does anyone know of ...
  14. You will need to show a contract of employment when you attend the embassy interview. No employment contract means no visa I'm afraid, but I'm sure you are aware of this and it is your cause of worry. Do you have a phone number for anyone at the hosp...
  15. Hi :) Has anyone used www.wes.org for evaluation of transcripts as a foriegn nurse for the USA? I'm a bit out of the loop with requirements now, as I went through the immigration process several years ago and the only option at that time was CGFNS. ...
