To be honest, this isn't going to happen. Visas for nurses have been unavailable for several years and I doubt there will be any available any time soon. Search here and google for nurse retrogression for more details. Even if there were visas, 1 year of experience and not qualified to work here is a togh sell when there are thousands of nurses here and thousands mite being churned out if colleges here every year.

She won't need a visa, she'll be moving over on an IR1. I think she's asking about practical help in working in nursing once she's over there.

I would suggest getting your registration with the state BON sorted. When did you train and does your transcripts show clinical and theory hours in Paeds, Mental Health, Obstetrics and Adult? US training is general and these hours will be required however how many hours will vary from state to state. For Texas if my memory serves me you will require CES report from CGFNS or the other accepted evaluation company. The report will breakdown your transcripts for the BON

Are you going to need parental permission (or a court order) to remove your "British" daughter from the UK?

People are asking me this however on my divorce I was granted sole custody and full,parental,responsibility. She has hubby's surname which we changed by deed poll with fathers permission when she was three. This was because we were married and he was on the birth certificate. My daughter is 16, 17 in couple weeks and her biological father hasn't seen her in 16 1/2 from when he left. Hubby has been her daddy for 13 nearly 14 years since we have been together. I know that doesn't mean anything but I don't think I need the sperm donors permission seriously though things in the divorce made him lose his parental rights

Transcripts have to show the hours both clinical and theory. Experience doesn't count. If you have over 75 hours approx in each area both clinical and theory you should be OK however it does vary a bit with each state. I know for me I had 75 clinical hours in Mental Health and Obstetrics and over 800 hours in Paeds and Adult with approx 100 hours each in theory and I was OK for 2 states

What you think doesn't really matter.

If both parents listed on the child's birth certificate are not immigrating to the United States, you will be required to present a written notarized permission from your ex spouse for a child under the age of 18 to immigrate to the United States.

Or a court order approving the immigration.

Just like to clarify just because he is on the birth certificate does not give them parental responsibility. I have divorce papers stating the biological father has no parental responsibility it was withdrawal due to things I will not mention here as isn't appropriate. I presume this is what you mean by notarized permission just not from thE EX!!! I have full parental responsibility. He even had an order put on him in case he tried to apply for a passport for my daughter. Thank you for the reply and all advice is appreciated
