U.S. IMMIGRATION GUIDE
FOR REGISTERED NURSES

Immigration for Registered Nurses Hospitals and other health care providers have immigrated hundreds of thousands of foreign-born registered nurses to the U.S.

Registered nurses are classified by the U.S. Department of Labor as a Schedule A shortage occupation which makes it easier for RNs to immigrate to the U.S. than persons in other occupations. Still, a foreign-born registered nurse must take the NCLEX examination (and sometimes the CGFNS examination), obtaining a VisaScreen certificate and be petitioned by a U.S. employer in order to immigrate to the U.S.

Our law firm has immigrated over 10,000 registered nurses to work in the hospitals across United States over the past 30 years.

We hope that this page demystifies the process of immigration for nurses, their employers and nurse recruiters. We provide numerous articles and links which explain how to submit a visa petition to employ a foreign-born registered nurse, discuss the often-confusing “VisaScreen” requirements which include credentialing and English-language proficiency tests, and enable readers to contact nurse licensing boards.

“I would like to thank the attorney Amy Prokop and the paralegal Ana Cruz for helping me with my green card application process…I really had a great experience with them. Both of them are very patient with my frequent questions…I truly recommend this law office for the healthcare professionals who want to become permanent residents.” (More client reviews…)
