HR 5924-The nurse relief bill has even more co-sponsors

The most recent update on the Emergency Nurse Relief bill is in the link I
have provided. Last month the bill HR 5924 had 10 bi-partisan co-sponsors,
now that number is up to 17. The support is mounting which is a very good
thing! This bill, when passed, will put an end retrogression for nurses. I
know people are hearing a lot of negative things, through blogs and the
internet especially in the Philippines, about how retrogression will never
end. Please know that rumors and misinformation are easy to spread and that
is exactly what those negative messages are. They are not based on fact!
The bill HR 5924 is a fact and it is counter to the rumor that retrogression
will never end. People involved in the Healthcare Industry know we have a
nursing shortage here in the U.S. Business leaders know that small business is negatively impacted by retrogressions as well. They, along with our government leaders,
are working hard to rectify the situation which is good reason for all of us
to be hopefull that these times will soon come to an end. if you have a specific question, seek proper legal advice, speak with an immigration specialist or send me a message here. Keep up the spirit!

    I AM LANDED IMMIGRANT HERE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA. I JUST WANT TO ASK IF I CAN WORK AS A REGISTERED NURSE IN CALIFORNIA? I AM ALSO A REGISTERED NURSE HERE IN BC, CANADA. I ALREADY PASS THE NCLEX AND THE IELTS? IS THERE A HOPE THAT I CAN FIND EMPLOYMENT AS RN IN CALIFORNIA?

    I believe that you can. First let me ask you, if you passed the NCLEX what State did you get the authorization to test in? Whatever State that is you probably hold a license for; if it was through another State than California you would need to endorse your license to CA. CA is a tricky State, they will not issue a license without a Social Security # if you tested through them or are endorsing. Here is the catch 22, to get a social security # you need to gain entry to the U.S. through immigration and having an employer. You may want to secure an employer first, get a social security # next and then get your CA license. If it is a California employer they will have to let you have enough time enter the country, get the Social Security number and apply for a temporary permit while your endorsement goes through. I hope I have helped…

    I forgot to mention that going through employment based immigration is a necessary step but it is slow right now due to retrogression but do not do not despair, you should go about finding an employer and getting your immigration petition filed to secure a priority date so when retrogression lifts you will have a place in line for a visa already.
