      I'd say the chances are very slim.

      But getting the Visa is actually not up to you fully,its to the employer who would want to sponser you etc

        It is my understanding that people in medical profession is eligible for special category of visa as long as you agree to sign for serving in a remote part of US.

          There are sites specialising in this, I do not have a link to hand but a search should produce the info.

          allnurses? rings a bell.

          I thought you could go straight to GC, problem I seem to remember at the moment is that the special category has been suspended so you are in with everybody else.

          Being a RN is usually a good move to go anywhere.

            That would be the H1-C visa...but it was suspended sometime back in 2005. If the OP is citizen of Canada or Mexico, the TN visa is another venue to try.

              Problem with this is that an RN is NOT required to have a Bachelors degree, the only exception to this is North Dakota (I believe). Some will argue with this but if you doubt me, check your state Nursing Board/ Ask if you can become an RN without a BA or BS

              The H-1B requires the beneficiary to have a Bachelors degree AND for the position named to require at least a Bachelors degree.
