VISA SCREEN for US educated nurses

Semka Semka (New) New

I need an advice. Im applying for a green card through an employer and I see that visa screen certificate is needed for nurses educated OUTSIDE of US.

I have US based RN degree and went to school here and passed the NCLEX. So I don't really understand the point of paying 540$ to verify my education.

My lawyer says I need it. Though I can't find any reliable info on internet confirming I need it.

Has anybody been in the same situation like me?

Go to the CGFNS webpage - it has all the info.

It appears you have a lawyer - is it yours or an employer???

Just an additional word. If you are here under a student visa and it has run out make sure you are not violating any immigration laws because that will jeopardize your immigration status/immigration.

On CGFNS website everything says about education outside of US. I also called them and they could not answer my question.

I do have a lawyer, my own, but again he works with the company and usually brings people from Philippines (Im not from up there).

More to say, my I140 has been approved andI485 already filed

Generally if you are the main applicant for immigrant visa then yes even though you trained in the US a vsc is required to prove that you have met requirements. It is the federal government that requires this

I have done Bachelor and Doctorate in nursing from the U.S. at a well ranked university. I am on a non-immigrant visa. Do I need to get the visa screen certificate as well? Were you required to provide it to USCIS?

Please let me know. Thank you.
