I have a US tourist visa. I actually just came back home from a Visit to the US. I am a nurse and I applied for my state board. But the BRN wanted me to take more classes in the US. How is this possible? Can i apply to convert my tourist visa to Student Visa? While on Student Visa, Can i find a job to help me pay for my school? And does that mean i cannot leave the country like a GC holder? What should i file to be considered legal to stay in the US? Thank you.
You may apply for an F-1 visa. However, F-1 students may not work off-campus during the first academic year, but may accept on-campus employment subject to certain conditions and restrictions.
There are various programs available for F-1 students to seek off-campus employment, after the first academic year. Your academic adviser can assist you with thus.
