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.
