I'm french and I currently studying for a nurse éducation program for the Red Cross.
My sister is maried and has children with an American and she'll apply to get nationalized in about 3 years from now.
I would like to immigrante to thé United States when I'll have my final degree but I don't know the procedures and the time it would take.
I read that since 2006, foreign nurses are not able to imigrate in USA anymore.
I also read on your website that you were able to help some french nurses to get a work visa. Is that still possible ? How much money would it take to have you helping me to enter in the USA ?
FInally, would you mind to inform me of my options, regarding the situation of mine ?

Immigraion for nurses has always been open. The process slowed down in 2006 when the visas allocated to Schedule A nurses was used up and nurses had to go through the queue just like other third preference employment-based immigrant visa applicants. So now, the present procedure is that visas for nurses are issued based on the applicant's priority date (which is set when the immigrant visa is filed with USCIS). Every month, the Visa Bulletin (a publication of the Department of State) announces the cut-off date of petitions for which visas are already available. If an applicant's priority date is earlier than the cut-off date, it means that a visa is immediately available and the applicant can go ahead to complete the immigration process at the consular level or adjustment of status if the applicant is physically present in the U.S.
The H-1B visa is available to nurses who are offered positions that fall within the ambit of advance practices in nursing.
Either way, you must have an employer who is willing to sponsor you by offering a nursing position

The process is slow for an immigrant visa. If you meet all the requirements and find an employer, you will have to wait several years. In the meantime, you should work in Nursing to gain experience.
I agree with the other lawyers

Yes. You are correct. The USG has a special program for qualified nurses to immigrate. It is a process. You must first show that your education meets the requirements of the same course-of-study in the United States. You must pass an ESOL exam and you must pass the nursing exam. Exams are given at various places through out the world including a few places in Europe. Once you qualify you have two choices. You can come to the United States sponsored by the emner byployer or you can come to the United States on your own with your nursing license and a green card. When you come through an employer you are commited to work for that employer for a period of time. In exchange the employer usually pays some or all of your immigration fees for you. When you come to the US on your own you are free to work for whom ever you choose. However you will have to pay all expenses yourself.
If you are interested in this process we work through out Florida and can assist you.
