B.SC (4y Nursing Degree) with 1y clinical work exp. H4 Visa. Options to work

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm posting this on behalf of my wife, Swetha.

 

She's in USA on dependent H4 visa. I want to know what her options are to work here as a nurse. She has B.Sc (4 years, Nursing degree) from NTR University, Vijayawada, India. She is also willing to convert to F1 (student) visa if she needs to practice nursing in USA. Please help by providing some guidance, your help is very much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Sai.

There at least a couple steps your wife will need to go through.  First and foremost she will need to take and pass the U.S. nursing licensure exam.  Then she will need to find an employer that will petition for her own H-1B visa.  There are immigration attorneys and law firms that specialize in foreign nurses.  You should research the topic on the Internet and contact a qualified immigration attorney experienced (specializing) in nursing.

My wife also finished her Bsc Nursing from NTR University, Vijayawada. If you have any information related to how to prepare for NCLEX, please share with us.

Check with the state agency covering licensure in the state in which she plans to practice.
