H-1C Visa Lawyer in New Jersey

Visas for Registered Nurses

Registered nurses from other countries can work in the United States under several employment visas. The H-1C Visa was established to provide medical workers in areas designated as lacking in a health professional shortage area. Currently there are 500 visas approved per fiscal year. Since there are so few visas approved each year, your best chance of successfully obtaining one of these visas depends heavily on the immigration attorney you choose.

Requirements for the H-1C Visa

Applicants must have an unrestricted license issued in the country of residence or the country where the nursing education occurred. The applicant must have passed an examination recognized by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This visa provides professional staff to hospitals located in certain areas designated by the Department of Labor.

The hospitals must have more than 190 beds and serve Medicare and Medicaid patients. The applicant must work in one of the designated hospitals. The visa expires after three years and is not extendable; however I may be able to help you apply for a green card or an additional work visa.
