    Is it because I would be an RN that's why I would have a better chance of getting it sooner? I was born in India as well even though I am Canadian. Apparently, If you are born in India or China no matter your country of Citizenship, it takes about 30-40+ years to get your green card after i140. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you!

    Hello everyone, I have been an RPN (LPN) in Toronto, Canada for 5 years. I have a lot of good experience. Now I am planning to go back to school. My boyfriend lives in California and he is on H1B visa at the moment, but soon he will be getting his i140. It will take him 30 to 40+ years to get his green card because he was born in India. We are planning to get married soon. We both want to live in California after marriage. So the problem is my education. I want to finish my LPN to BscN in California after we get married. I know I need SSN in order to write my NCLEX-PN in California. I have also heard that Trump is ending spousal work visa. If that's the case I don't know how else will I get my SSN and write NCLEX-PN and then start LPN to ADN/ BscN school? Another concern we have is the cost related to my education. I don't want to pay too much international education fees and be in debt for the rest of my life. Is there something like if you live in a state for 6 months then you are a resident of that state and pay the same amount of tuition as an American would? Would I be able to get a job if I go to community college? Is it better to do LPN to ADN and then ADN to BscN in my case? I do eventually want to get my NP as well but I don't know when or how at the moment. Also, another concern I have is working in the US. I know if Trump cancels spousal work visa, which is very likely to happen, I will need to apply for H1B or get TN visa before I apply for H1B so that I have more chances to get H1B. If I finish my BscN in California would I still be able to get TN visa being a Canadian citizen and having a bachelors degree? Would I be able to skip the education screening process because my BscN would be from California? We don't know how any of this is going to work. It's all very confusing at the moment. We don't want to be in a long distance anymore. If none of this works, I guess we both have to move back to Canada but I don't want that either because then all of my boyfriends hard work that he has put towards US immigration will go down the drain. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for listening!
