Hi everyone,

I'm from Vietnam. I go to school in Michigan and will complete my BSN program in December of this year, 2019. I have recently found out about Conexus and their sponsorship program, which they help F1 visa students to find a placement for OPT and file visa application. Is there anyone have been through this program with Conexus? How was your experience? How active was Conexus during the whole process of finding OPT placement and visa application? Is there any of you who went through this process and had received your green card? How long did it take, if you don't mind I'm asking? 

I appreciate any information that you can share with me. Thank you in advance!!

I’m also from Vietnam and did receive my green card. I did not go through a hiring agency though; the hospital I’m working at sponsored my green card. With OPT, you can find placement yourself, but beyond that you’ll need help from either your employment or a hiring agency as you mentioned. I got very lucky with the hospital that I’m working for now, especially when they mentioned the option of green card sponsorship when I was hired, but it did take me a year to receive my green card.

I’m not sure if you read this topic yet, but it may be helpful to you. It looks like many international nurses used Conexus and have been successful with their immigration process. It does sound like you need to be flexible to move to a state where there is a need, and you might end up working in an LTC facility instead of a hospital.
